Event Description

We are alive in difficult times; there isn’t a person who hasn’t experienced some sort of turmoil or crisis. Many people describe feeling as if we are moving from crisis to crisis in our personal lives, in our communities and in the religious institutions to which we turn for guidance. This two-part series (Nov. 5 and 19) at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) will be facilitated by Father Denny Juhl. In it, we will explore what it means to be people of faith in these times. How do we sustain faith when hurt, disillusioned, alienated, grieving? How do we live in-between the time when everything made sense and the time before all comes together again in a hope-filled future? On Nov. 5, Remembering What Makes Us Whole, we will explore how faith offers stability and hope, even when significant loss tells us life will never be the same. The depth of grief can cause us to step into the grave or nurture deep spiritual revival. We will engage powerful ways to discover life-giving, soulful ways to step—stronger and more fully alive—into the future. You are welcome to attend the Prairiewoods Remembrance Service (6–6:30 p.m.) prior to the start of this session. Feel free to enjoy this as a series or as individual sessions. The cost is $15 per session. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at or 319-395-6700.medi
