Thank you to all who assisted in making our 2018 retreat a success. Our goal was to promote growth: personal, spiritual, & social growth. From the feedback we’ve gotten, it appears we achieved our goal. A special thank you to the LaVergne church of Christ in LaVergne, TN for permitting the WW ministry to use their building without rental charge. Their support of this ministry has been a source of great encouragement. If you wish to view pictures and read a brief summary of the retreat, click here.
About 800,000 people every year enter the experience of widowhood in the United States. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 million citizens are either widows or widowers. Maybe we need to address this issue, don’t you think?
The subject may not be in our comfort zone but we need to think about it, study about it, and talk about it. Why? The co-authors of Getting to the Other Side of Grief (Overcoming the Loss of a Spouse) observe, “…those who have never been widowed barely have a clue to what the process is really like.” Widowhood Workshop is a ministry attempting to raise awareness about this life experience.
It was birthed in the grief journey of Dean Miller, a minister in the Lord’s church who lost his wife in 2013. It is a flexible workshop that can be tailored to a church or organization’s schedule and purposes for hosting it.
This workshop will be a blessing to:
• Widows and Widowers
• Married Couples
• Those who want to minister to Widows & Widowers
Widowhood: From the Divine Perspective
Widowhood: From the Personal Perspective
