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 both virtually, and in person, on Thursday, Nov. 4 at 7:30 p.m. in The Chapel, formerly the bookstore, 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 for the in-person seminar, call Linda Ibach at the church, 973-427-6960 and register here. For the virtual session, call Lories Slockbower at 973-628-0745. and register under our online listing.
