Life after loss

The Destin United Methodist Church sponsored Stephen Ministers are forming a grief group for all those who have experienced a loss. The group will share your journey of grief and help you to reconcile with this grief.

The attempt to return to the routines of one’s life after facing a significant loss is no small challenge. This group will recognize the need to grieve and the need to slow down and take it easy. One day at a time is not just a cliché; it is a guiding principle for those facing loss.

The group will meet for six consecutive weeks, beginning with a one hour preview or introduction at 2 p.m. April 17 in the Destin Life Center. Group begins at 2 p.m. April 24 and meets on Thursdays. Contact Tom Timothy at or 974-3373, or Judy Freed at or 654-5332.
