Do you know someone who is hurting because they have a loved one who was raised in the faith, but, currently, is inactive in the practice of the faith? Dr. Jack Buchner of The St. Monica Ministry will be presenting a workshop on Saturday March 15 at St. Johns (from 9 -11:30 AM in the Gathering Space Meeting Room). This workshop is designed to facilitate healing and spiritual growth , in the midst of the pain. It includes a presentation, on " why" people raised in the faith become inactive, and practical Do's and Dont's , by way of response, as well as guided prayer to help participants to more clearly see " where", " when", and " how" our Lord has touched THEIR OWN lives, and what this might suggest , by way of response to loved ones. There is no fee for this workshop, but a $10 workbook will be available. Registration preferred but not required.
