Bereavement Support Group at UUFSB – Mondays, April 8 through May 20 – 7:00-8:30 p.m.
While death is a fact of life, when it happens to someone we love it can hit us in expected and unexpected ways. The death of a loved one is considered to be one of the greatest stressors in life and it can take months or even years to regain balance. Grieving people can often benefit from sharing their feelings in a safe environment with people who are not necessarily family or close friends.
The Rev. Dr. Linda Anderson, Community Minister in affiliation with UUFSB. is starting another Bereavement Support Group for UUFSB members, friends, and members of the community. The potential to benefit from a bereavement group is not limited to people who have suffered a loss in recent weeks or months, and Linda encourages anyone who has lost a loved one within the past fifteen months and struggles with grief to join the group. The group is free to all and is designed to be helpful to people of all faiths and no faith.
