The GriefShare Ministry of the Hawthorne Gospel Church will host Surviving the Holidays, a helpful, encouraging seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death. The seminar will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. in The Chapel, formerly the Bible House, at the church, 2000 Route 208 N, Hawthorne.

The seminar features video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death and who offer practical suggestions and reassurance. These people share honestly about:
Being prepared for surprising emotions that may hit over the holidays
What to do about traditions and other coming changes
How to handle holiday parties and invitations
How to survive potentially awkward moments with other people
Where to find comfort, strength, and hope in a seemingly hopeless time

Those who attend may purchase a $5 Survival Guide filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas, and exercises for daily help through the holiday season.

To register, call Nela Chacon at the church, 973-427-6960.
