Winter Gatherings for Our Grief Support Group
December 17 | January 21 | February 18
In May 2017, my loving wife of 36 years, Linda, passed away after a tough seven-month battle with cancer. I was devastated. Fortunately, a grief support group started at Smoke Rise Baptist Church the fall after Linda’s passing and I joined immediately. This group was instrumental in blessing me with the ability to work through the darkest, coldest and toughest time of my life, to now experiencing the joy, peace and hope of new life through the love and grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Adam Arnold and Jim Smith coordinate the support group, doing a tremendous job of leading this loving, caring and supportive gathering of people. Meetings are held monthly and include time for sharing our various challenging experiences of and with grief. We are also given reference materials to take home to continue our healing process throughout our grief journeys.
I would highly recommend this group to anyone who has been or is experiencing loss or grief in their lives. I have been blessed by the Lord to be a part of this group. It has helped me reach a level of reconciliation and understanding, opening my heart to the point where I have fallen in love and married again.
Peace and Blessings,
