Grief sharing

New Grief Support Group Starting and some thoughts about Grief

Grief Share is a special weekly seminar and support group you should know about. It is described in their brochure as help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend.

This is a 13 week series and is starting August 15 at 6:00 PM at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, located at 3718 E. Blue Ridge Road in Shelbyville. Each Monday evening the group will meet from 6 to 8:00 PM. If you would like more information please contact Linda Bowers at 317- 796-2353 or go to griefshare.org

Since the start of the pandemic ( do we still technically call it that?) grief support has changed. Many of us have been reluctant to hug, touch, and even gather for funeral services. There was even that horrible period of time that we couldn't visit our loved ones in the hospital or long term care facilities. What has this done to our spirit? I believe our spirits are tired. We need people to understand that grief is not over in two weeks or two months or two years. But grief is diminished when shared. People who have experienced the loss of a spouse, child, loved one are the ones who truly understand. They are the ones who can share the multitude of emotions and finally the prospect of hope. Spirits can get a little perk by talking about all these feelings with those who have been there. I urge you to look into the GriefShare groups and begin to learn and share your grief journey.
