The Grief Share grief support group will begin the first of its 13 weekly sessions on 4 p.m. Monday at the Morris Evangelical Free Church, 901 Scotts Avenue in Morris. Facilitator Judy Diehl told the KMRS Community Connection that each two-hour session has three parts: a video seminar, a small group discussion, and a personal workbook.
“The group discussion, people can speak if they wish to,” said Diehl. “We don’t force anybody to speak if they just can’t. So, it’s a very comfortable area once we get to know each other and it’s been just a wonderful ministry that our church can provide.”
Diehl said they could have done these sessions via Zoom, but she noted that participants will get more out of it if they are physically together – with the proper safeguards. The sessions are free, but there is a $15 fee for the workbook and scholarships are available for that for those who need it. Participants can come to one or all of the sessions.
