Learning Through Loss

SESSION 4 – WINTER 2018

After all the attempts to comfort ourselves and to make sense of our loss, we are still left with a huge hole in the fabric of our lives; “I miss you, I miss you, I miss you.”

And then what?

In this session of Learning Through Loss we will dig into the scriptures to learn what God has planned for us and how we can move forward with His divine plan for us.

This session will be lead by Robin Tharpe.  Our goal is to help you on your healing journey and deeper walk with Christ.

Meetings are held at Santa Rosa Beach Community Church in the chapel at 11:00A.M.

We encourage you to come and learn, forge new friendships with others who are also working through their loss, through these informative classes and occasional after-meeting lunches and outings.

We look forward to meeting you as we journey together in
Learning Through Loss.

Winter Session 4 Schedule:

February 6, 2018:      Grief Can Be So Different for Each of Us
February 15, 2018:     God’s Plan Through Grief

READERS’ CORNER:

Traveling Light: Releasing the Burdens You Were Never Intended to Bear  by Max Lucado

Weary travelers. You’ve seen them — everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks.

Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop.

We’ve all seen people like that.

At times, we are people like that — if not with our physical luggage, then at least with our spiritual load.

We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We’re worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn’t it be nice to lose some of those bags?

That’s the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-third Psalm as our guide, let’s release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear.

Using these verses as a guide, Max Lucado walks us through a helpful inventory of our burdens. May God use this Psalm to remind you to release the burdens you were never meant to bear.
