“Deeper Spirituality through Illness and Pain”
Denise Cawley, member
Tristan Strelitzer, Choral Director
No one asks to become seriously ill or to go through a physical, mental or emotional crisis, but these things happen to us and to our loved ones. As we sit with the trauma, how do we move through anger, and despair and find the best of the situation, or better yet take advantage of pain and tragedy and make it your teacher?
