Most people have suffered grief through some sense of loss in their life. It may be the life of a loved one, but grief often comes through normal life experiences as divorce, health, and even loss of faith. Grief, if not learned to cope, can have longtime negative effects on a person, keeping them from restoring a sense of peace and happiness within their lives. It is possible to recover from grief and restore a sense of normality within one’s life.
Harlingen Church is offering an 8-week program on Grief Recovery, designed through the Grief Recovery Institute. The program itself is not a faith-based program, although there are elements that carry over into every faith. Through the material presented, one can find guidance for dealing with:
Our next class opens in January, 2020, and will meet on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. The cost of the program is $100.00 for the program to cover the costs of materials, and registration is limited to 12 people. To register for the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (908) 969-1802.
Harlingen Church honors and remembers those who willingly place their lives in the line of danger to protect and serve our country and our community.
At least quarterly, members of Harlingen Church collect cases of water, snacks, coffee and other needs for our local police departments, volunteer fire companies, and EMTs, to let them know:
By providing them with these goods, the departments have a little extra funds to better serve their needs as most departments have to use their budget funds to cover the costs of water, snacks, etc.
Additionally, Harlingen Church sends care packages to units of service members who are affiliated with our church. The packages are sent to the church members who then see to their distribution.
How does Al-Anon work?
There is no magic formula that enables you to help someone stop—or cut back—on his or her drinking. Alcoholism is a complex problem, with many related issues. But Al‑Anon can help you learn how to cope with the challenges of someone else’s drinking.
It may be that you could help matters by changing some of your own behaviors that make things worse. It may be possible for you to find a healthier way to respond to these challenges. Again, there are no easy answers. But Al‑Anon meetings offer the opportunity to learn from the experiences of others who have faced similar problems.
While simple problems may have simple solutions, the solution to complex problems is more difficult to explain. Al‑Anon simplifies a complex problem by suggesting a “One Day at a Time” approach, which takes things one step at a time.
At every Al‑Anon meeting, you can hear people explain how Al‑Anon worked for them. That may be the best place to start to learn about Al‑Anon—One Day at a Time.
Al‑Anon members come to understand problem drinking as a family illness that affects everyone in the family. By listening to Al‑Anon members speak at Al‑Anon meetings, you can hear how they came to understand their own role in this family illness. This insight put them in a better position to play a positive role in the family’s future.
Some research shows that when problem drinkers enter a recovery program, their chances for success are improved when they are supported by family members who are in a family recovery program such as Al‑Anon.
