Big Canoe Chapel to sponsor GriefShare Group

Big Canoe Chapel will sponsor a GriefShare Group, which will begin on Monday October 9, 2017 and end on Monday January 15, 2018.

The weekly meetings, with a break for Christmas, will held in the lower level of the Broyles Center from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The Group will be led by Sandra Hintze, Bob Layfield and Della Clendenin.

The definition of recovery from grief is simply “feeling better.” But, no matter what the circumstances, grief recovery is a painful process.

It is the ability to find joy in life again. It is to treasure the memory of loved ones, to miss them and to live better because of the time in your life that you spent with them.

Grief is not an enemy or a sign of weakness. It is a sign of being human. It is the cost of loving someone. It is inevitable that during such a loss we would be deeply impacted, shocked, or wounded by it.

Grief is the manner or process in which we work through this loss. The emotions are seeking to reorganize themselves to cope with the loss and to once again reestablish healthy relationships.

The Big Canoe Chapel GriefShare Group is a special weekly seminar and support group for people who are grieving the death of a family member or friend. It’s a place to be around people who understand what you are feeling.

At GriefShare, you’ll learn valuable information about recovering from your grief and renewing your hope for the future. GriefShare is designed to help you recover from the deep hurt that comes with your loss. Your GriefShare experience includes three key elements to help you in the healing process.

Video: At each session, you will view a video on an issue related to grief and loss. These videos feature top experts on a variety of subjects important to the grief recovery process. On each video, you’ll also hear the personal stories of people like you who have been through grieving experiences.

Support group: After the video, the group will discuss what was seen on the video and what is going on in your lives. You will stay with the same group of people for the 13 GriefShare sessions. It is very likely that you will begin to see the people in your group as “family.” Your group leaders will have discussion questions to help guide the group time. It’s also important to take time to “catch up” on the trials, problems and successes experienced by group members between each session.

Between sessions: Between sessions, you’ll have time to reflect on what happened at the group meeting and how the concepts you discussed might apply to your personal circumstances. Each participant will be given a workbook that will lead you to some relevant and practical sections of the Bible and guide you through a personal evaluation of how these verses apply directly to your situation. This material can make a real difference in your recovery and you are encouraged to spend a little time each day on it.

The GriefShare group and personal study will help you to heal and develop a hope for the future. We encourage you to become active and committed to the GriefShare group and look expectantly at what God can do in your life.

For more information regarding the GriefShare group and to ask any questions you may have, please call Sandra Hintze at 706-268-1937.
