Asbury United Methodist Church offers grief recovery program

"Grief Share" is a network of thousands of grief recovery support group meetings around the world. In this program, participants learn how to walk the journey of grief with support along the way. These weekly "Grief Share" groups are designed to help people recover from the deep hurt of death and find healing and hope.


There are three components to "Grief Share", a 13 week program:

1 - Groups share a video featuring personal stories of people grieving the death of a loved one along with expert insights on topics important to grief recovery.

2 - Participants become part of a small support group where discussion centers on the video but also includes the discussion of problems and successes experienced by group members. Group members are never asked to share personal experiences unless they make the choice to do so.

3 - Groups discuss their workbook, From Mourning to Joy, which includes daily prayers, meaningful reflections, questions and comforting Bible Scriptures. Each session lasts approximately 90 minutes.

To learn more about "Grief Share", readers may log onto www.griefshare.org.
