Is there such a thing as “good grief? Since Charlie Brown is not available to tell us, the Called to Care Team is sponsoring an exploration of “good grieving” beginning June 19 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. We will meet at Bethel on Tuesday evenings from June 19 through August 7 to consider the whys, whens, wheres, and hows of good grieving.
