Journey to Wholeness – Healing the Grieving Heart

The First Presbyterian Church of Cranford, located at 11 Springfield Ave., will hold their free eight-week seminar “Journey to Wholeness – Healing the Grieving Heart” on Sunday evenings from September 17- November 5, 2017.
Patti Williams, a registered nurse and certified pastoral bereavement counselor, along with Virginia Waters, a PhD. Psychologist, will lead the sessions from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Thompson Youth Center of the church. Patti and Virginia are beginning the 18th year of this ministry, and have helped about 2,600 people experience healing, find a new purpose for their lives, and feel joy once again. This is an experience like no other.
The sessions include learning about the stages of grief and understanding the tasks of the grieving process, coping strategies, dealing with loneliness, building a support system, and other helpful skills for healing.
Both of the leaders and all of the facilitators have experienced loss within their lives and share from “the inside out”. It does not matter if your loss is divorce, death, or job loss; loss is loss- it must be grieved. It does not matter how long ago your experienced loss. Bring family members and friends. All faiths are welcome. Teen group available. To register for this life changing event, please call 908-709-1341. No fee is charged.
The seminar is dedicated to Patti’s late husband, the Rev. Dr. Bruce D. Williams, who had a vision for this program out of wanting to help others deal with their pain and suffering during their time of loss.
