Pastors’ Book Group – The Myth of Closure

Pastors’ Book Group – The Myth of Closure

Wednesday, November 9
7:00 p.m., Fullerton Room 

quoteJoin the Rev. Dr. Agnes Norfleet for a discussion of Pauline Boss’ recent book, The Myth of Closure: Ambiguous Loss in a Time of Pandemic and Change. Boss identifies these vague feelings of distress as caused by ambiguous loss, losses that remain unclear and hard to pin down, and thus have no closure. Collectively the world is grieving as the pandemic continues to change our everyday lives. This book provides many strategies for coping: encouraging us to increase our tolerance of ambiguity and acknowledging our resilience as we express a normal grief, and still look to the future with hope and possibility.

We are delighted to be able to return to this unique Adult Education opportunity, as the pastors take turns inviting the congregation to read and discuss books with them that speak to relevant topics and concerns in our world today. Books will be available to purchase at the church for $15 or can be purchased online through most book sellers. For more information: This email address is being protected from spambots.
