Grief Support Group begins end of September

Special to The Log

The Destin United Methodist Church sponsored Stephen Ministers are forming a Grief Group for all those who have experienced a loss. The group will meet for six consecutive weeks.

The attempt to return to the routines of one’s life after facing a significant loss is no small challenge. Our 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. Readjusting after a significant loss is nothing less than beginning again … again. Our normal has been taken away from us and our new normal is both frightening and foreboding.

Our group will share your journey of grief and help you to reconcile with this grief. We are offering a one hour preview or introduction to the Grief Group at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, in the Destin Life Center (DLC) building. This meeting will discuss the six week course and answer your questions.

If you feel that the Grief Group could be helpful please let us know so we can have a place for you. The group will commence at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 31, also in the DLC.
