‘Mourning to Joy’ 13-week series helps you deal with the death of a loved one

A new series from the organization Griefshare is being presented at the Bible Fellowship Assembly in Porcupine – and on Zoom – beginning this Sunday, September 10th.

The 13-week presentation is called “Mourning to Joy”,  and deals with the death of a loved one.

Ted and Peggy Bendell are facilitators – not counsellors. Peggy says “Is this normal?” is the topic for the first two-hour session.

“One of the hardest reactions people have is ‘I feel angry. How can I be angry that they’re dead?’” she says. “But when they know that that’s normal, then they don’t feel guilty.”

The Bendells will screen a video and lead discussion on a different related topic every week.  It doesn’t matter if you miss a week.

“And then they have a workbook,” Peggy notes. ”They take that workbook home and there’s three or four questions every day for five days for them to grapple with. And I always tell them (to) use a notebook, because then you can write more.”

There’s no charge to sign up. To do that, email [email protected] or call Ted Bendell at 705-360-0697.  You can also listen to our interview.
