Dogwood Church to offer holiday GriefShare session


People who’ve experienced the death of a loved one often face Thanksgiving and Christmas with dread. But grieving people can find strategies and encouragement to make it through the holiday season at GriefShare’s Surviving the Holidays seminar. Dogwood Church will offer this seminar Wednesday, Nov. 18, from 7-9 p.m. The session will be held in the Atrium area of the church office at 975 Ga. Highway 74, Tyrone.

The video presentation offers suggestions on how to handle hard-hitting emotions during the holiday season, what to do about family traditions, how to scale back on activities and holiday preparations, and where to find the strength to go on.

 “I learned that it’s okay not to carry on every tradition, and it’s okay to cut back on invitations,” shared a seminar attendee.

After the video, there will be a small group discussion time where attendees discuss concepts learned on the video and share their specific concerns. Each seminar attendee receives a Survival Guide containing over 30 days of short, devotional readings that target specific concerns faced by grieving people.
