This is a covenanted group. Our conversations, which may be quite personal, are to be kept confidential, and attendance at all sessions is expected. Though Rev. Julia has led groups for several hospice organizations, you do not have to have had a recent bereavement to find this helpful and healing.
Our faith tradition encourages us to lead examined lives, which includes facing the pain we each carry with courage and open hearts. We will bear witness to each other’s stories, as we discover anew how to weave our losses into a larger, more hopeful narrative.
The group will be limited to a maximum of eight people. If you have already spoken informally with Rev. Julia about this, please contact her right away to confirm your participation. To find out more about the nature of the group and to sign up, contact Rev. Julia in person or at:
