Forgiveness is support group's topic

Send a link to a friend

[April 01, 2009]  Do I have to forgive my ex-spouse? Can I really learn to do that?

These and other questions related to forgiveness after divorce will be answered when the DivorceCare seminar and support group meets from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, April 7, at Jefferson Street Christian Church, 1700 N. Jefferson.

DivorceCare is a video seminar series featuring experts on divorce and recovery topics such as coping with depression and anger, financial survival, and loneliness. Each session also includes a discussion of the material presented during the video.

The video "Forgiveness" compares the emotional and physical effects of unforgiveness with the freedom and permanent healing that come through forgiving the former spouse. It features psychologist and author Robert Abarno and counselor Doug Easterday, author of "Restoration Through Forgiveness."

DivorceCare will meet on Tuesdays through April 21. Participants may join the group at any time during the 12-week series. Registration is not required. Cost of the DivorceCare workbook is $12. Child care is available.

Call 217-732-9294 for more information.

Future topics:

  • April 14 -- "Reconciliation"

  • April 21 -- "Moving On, Growing Closer to God"
