Lifelong Learners “Good Grief, Charlie Brown” presented by Maureen Burns and Deb Christensen

10 a.m. to Noon, Stanley & Blanche Ash Technology & Learning Center on MCC's Greenville campus 

 

We live in a world with all kinds of loss happening around us. What do we say and do to help others as they grieve and go through hard times? How can we make it better? Maureen Burns and Deb Christensen will share a wealth of ideas and thoughts to guide us during such challenging times. Together they bring deep, personal, spiritual and caring insights (and, of course, laughter) to aid in this process. They will point out how everyone grieves differently and guide us in bringing compassion when needed. Men and women of all ages will benefit from this program. Burns is an author of six books, a weekly columnist and an international professional speaker. She has worked for years discussing this topic with insurance companies, hospitals, churches and suicide prevention groups. Christensen is co-chair of the non-denominational Ministry of Consolation at St. Charles Church. She is inspiring as she brings her unique message by sharing loss from a mother’s perspective.
