A Journey Through Grief is a Christmas Workshop/worship Service that seeks to help those that grieve cope better during the holiday season.  The Workshop/worship service will be held on Monday, December 10, 2018, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church, 2310 E Linwood Blvd., Kansas City, MO. 

Dr. Pamela Taylor is the featured speaker.  Dr. Taylor will provide a spirit filled presentation to educate attendees on grief and loss issues; to comfort to those who hurt; and to provide hope to those overwhelmed with their loss during the holiday season.

Gospel artist Zenobia Smith will provide seasonal Christmas song.  Zenobia Smith is an excellent gospel artist who sings to the glory of the Lord.  Reggie Watkins will accompany Ms. Smith.

William Pankey MD will provide leadership during the time of remembrance period around the Christmas tree.  During this time period, attendees are provided an ornament to record the name of their loved one on.  Attendees can say a few words publicly about their loved one or share a brief memory while placing the ornament on the Christmas tree.  Bonita Lisa Rieves will play Christmas music during this period.

The program ends with a question and answer period.  The panelists will be Rev. Dennis Shaw, William Pankey, M.D., and Dr. Pamela Taylor.  This is your opportunity to speak to the experts concerning issues you are experiencing in regard to how to cope after the loss of a loved one during the holiday season.
