Spiritual Life Brief - LAUMC support group

LAUMC launches grief support group

Los Altos United Methodist Church has scheduled a six-week Good Grief Support Group 7-8:30 p.m. beginning Sunday and continuing Sundays through March 2 in the church’s Redwood Room, 655 Magdalena Ave.

In a culture that often avoids talking about loss, the Good Grief Group aims to provide a safe place for people to share their experiences of grief and loss.

“After the loss of a loved one, we experience a wide variety of feelings and emotions,” said an organizer of the group. “The ever-changing emotions can catch us off guard, causing us to act out of character or differently than our typical personality and demeanor. We all need a support system as we move through our grief journey. While family and friends are vital, unless they have experienced a close personal loss, they most likely don’t fully get it.”

The group size is intentionally small, so to ensure a spot, register in advance at laumc.org/good-grief-january.

For more information, call the church office at 948-1083.
