Our lives are marked by a variety of losses. Some are life-changing: leaving home…the death of a loved one…divorce…a business failure…retirement…a vanishing dream or ideal. Yes, loss comes in many forms and a various times throughout our lives. With every loss comes the potential for change, growth, new insights, understanding and refinement. Loss is not the enemy; not facing its existence is. Many of us have become more proficient in developing denial rather than grieving.
Roger Crites, Pastor of Congregational Care at First Baptist Church of Geneva, Illinois, will assist you in learning to live through the losses of your life. As a pastor for the past 35 years, his passion has always been to help hurting people connect with the grace and comfort of God. Losses and suffering often create road blocks along the road of life. As a cancer survivor, he understands from his own experiences the grief that brings challenges to your journey of faith. He will speak to your pain and loss with words of comfort and hope.
“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
The next Grief Support workshop is scheduled for Sunday, April 6, 2014 from 3-5 in the chapel at East Campus.
