Free Webinar Series: Coach Yourself Through Grief
From our partners at Coaching at End of Life:
Tuesdays, August 9, 16, 23, 30, at 12noon Eastern (4 one-hour classes)
If a loved one of yours has died, then you know how painful grief can be. In the midst of this pandemic, every one of us is experiencing loss in many forms. The emotions can be overwhelming. Many feel like they are “going crazy!” Nothing helps walking the journey of grief more than having a Certified End of Life Coach by your side. But what do you do when your coach isn’t there? What happens when you forget what your Coach told you? “Coach Yourself Through Grief” is a training designed for anyone who is in the midst of grief, whether it be a death loss, or a loss from this pandemic. The goal of the training is to help individuals to learn what “normal grief” looks like, and to encourage them to mourn well.

Where in the world is?
Across a context as wide and different as NT-NL, the reality of Covid-19 is very different. As such, NT-NL synod staff are doing more in-person Sunday visits for worship and occasional meetings. However, as good stewards of time and travel dollars, we will be utilizing online meeting formats into our new hybrid future. Given the rise of breakthrough infections and in order to protect those gathered, the synod staff will choose to wear masks as is deemed appropriate unless preaching or presiding and sufficient social distancing can be provided.
