UPCOMING EVENT FROM THE CENTER FOR SPIRITUAL FORMATION INC.

SHARED SORROW
A Faith Community's Response to Grief & Mourning
with Ron and Carol Swift
Orchard Hill, Millerstown, PA
Saturday, March 24
9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
$50 includes lunch, materials, and 1 CEU

People do not resolve, recover from, or "get over" grief, but they can, over time, become reconciled to their losses as they find hope, healing, and renewed meaning and purpose in their lives. Join us as we explore the mourner's six reconciliation needs and consider the compassionate response of a faith community in times of sorrow.

CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF THE ADVANCE:
God's Love at Work when Disaster Strikes

One of the great things about a channel like The Advance is its ability to pool the resources of caring, generous people to respond to a crisis. Another great thing about The Advance is its ability to resource those who plan ahead to mitigate the dangers of a natural disaster.
