Grief and the Holidays

Kelly Poag, a member of our congregation and a Christian counselor, wrote the attached article for Westwoods Community Church members, and wanted to also make it available to TLC members. It’s a simple, but helpful article that is aimed at helping people who are grieving this holiday season, or, for those who care for someone who is. 

As I make Christmas pastoral visits, I often hear a common story, and that is of lonely people who feel depressed, but do not want to tell their family or friends. Others feel ashamed of their feelings because they feel their faith should be stronger. I think this article will be helpful for all to read because I am almost certain that you, or, a member of your family can benefit by reading it.

God’s blessings to all,
Deacon Peggy
