Grief Recovery Seminar at First Baptist
A six-week grief recovery seminar is being held on Wednesday afternoons at First Baptist Church at La Crescenta. The seminars are from 2:30 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.

“Grieving is not a weakness, for it is normal,” said the Rev. Dr. Peter Hintzolglou, who will guide the sessions. “And there is no timing that one can set when grief may be over. Often we don’t get over it, we learn to manage it.”

The seminars are free and open to all. For questions, call (818) 249-5832.
