St. Luke's will host a free GriefShare "Surviving the Holidays" seminar on Sunday, November 17 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Barnes Learning Center (second floor of Founder's Hall) in Room 211. At this two-hour free seminar you'll learn practical, actionable strategies for making it through the holiday season. Our seminar is led by our GriefShare lay team who have experienced intense loss themselves and lead weekly GriefShare sessions. 

You'll also meet other grieving people who have an understanding of what you're going through. You'll view a video and hear insights from respected Christian counselors, pastors, and psychologists as well as advice from people in grief who've faced the holidays after their loss. Participants will receive a Holiday Survival Guide with practical strategies, encouraging words, helpful exercises, Q/A's, and journaling ideas for daily survival through the holiday season.

This seminar is open to anyone who has suffered a loss and finds it difficult to get through the holidays no matter how long ago your loved one passed. The holiday season won't be easy; your emotions may totally overwhelm you and pull you down but you can choose to walk through the season in a way that honors your loved one and puts you on the path of health and healing. We hope you'll join us on November 17. Online registration is requested for this event so that we can provide enough workbooks, snacks and refreshments for all attendees. Please contact the Care office at 407.876.4991 ext. 262 if you have additional questions.

The story of Jesus' life and teaching comes to us in four versions in the New Testament. While broadly similar, the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John differ in important ways. In some cases, the same story is told in all the Gospels but with different details. In other cases, one Gospel includes a story not found in the others. How do we explain these differences? What distinct themes and theologies emerge in each Gospel? Is it possible to harmonize the four Gospels into one, unified Jesus story? In exploring these questions, this three-week course will help you better understand the unique perspectives of each Gospel, including their literary and theological relationship to one another. Emphasis will be placed on why it is significant for our faith formation today that we encounter Jesus not through one story but a four-fold Gospel.

Taught by Ryan Bonfiglio, Assistant Professor in the Practice of Old Testament and Director of Public Theological Education at Emory's Candler School of Theology.

Wednesdays, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., December 4, 11, 18; Founders Hall, Distance Room 206, Second Floor.
