We all are familiar with these statistics: more than half or more marriages end in divorce. Divorce is painful. It affects everybody - the couple, their family, friendships, neighbors – everything. It is the death of a relationship and those who divorce experience emotions that are similar to loss and grief … each in their own way … and in their own timing.
As Christians, we believe that death is not the end of life; that there is “new life” awaiting us. Divorce need not be the end of a productive and fulfilling life. There IS life beyond divorce.
Divorce and Beyond is a support group for people who have filed for divorce, in the middle of a divorce or already divorced. It helps participants understand what they are going through and that others have gone through similar experiences. There is a workbook that is used as a help. It is not a magic elixir … but it helps participants move forward to the “new life” that they deserve.
It is a 10 session commitment beginning Wednesday, September 13. Participants meet every other week. The meetings begin at 6:00pm in the Pastoral Center, Damian A.
