A special event, presented by Summerland Baptist Church, will provide strategies for those who have been recently separated or divorced as they prepare for the holiday season.
Surviving the Holidays is a two-hour event which will be held Nov. 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the church. It is part of DivorceCare, which is offered through the church.
The seminar begins with a video featuring interview clips from respected Christian counsellors, psychologists and authors, speaking of topics pertinent to people in separation or divorce.
The videos also include advice from those who have experienced a marital breakup and have faced at least one holiday season since then.
Participants will receive a Holiday Survival Guide. They will also spend time with others who understand what they are going through and who will accept them without expectations or judgement.
