Life Quote of the Week:
“The beginning of the Christmas Gospel reminds us of Mary’s condition. She is pregnant, with child … The growth and development of a baby in the womb from just two tiny cells is a miracle … After five weeks, the embryo is the size of a grain of rice. It has a brain and spinal cord. After six weeks, the heart is beating and you can see the eyes, ears, and head. After seven weeks, the arms, legs, and nose are visible. After eight weeks, the baby is only two centimeters long, but you can still see its fingers and toes. The perfect alignment and connection of every cell is a wondrous miracle. In the growth and development of every baby, we are participants in God’s gracious miracle of creation and new life.” Bishop John F. Bradosky, North American Lutheran Church

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.
“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. https://www.griefshare.org/
Next Session starts February 7, 2020, meeting every Friday at the DOCK, 1-3pm.
