The pain of divorce can be devastating. It can take a long time to heal that pain, but anyone going through divorce can find hope in encouragement, answers, and friendship at the DivorceCare group at Pendleton Center United Methodist Church (PCUMC). The seminar is for people who are considering divorce, going through divorce now, or are still in need of support years later.
People in the aftermath of a marital breakup can begin attending at any time. "People facing the trauma of divorce need help right away", says Steve Grissom, founder and president of Divorce Care/Church Initiative. "With DivorceCare, the emergency room is always open".
Facilitator Lori Jagow, is a counselor at Samaritan Pastoral Counseling Center, North Tonawanda, and leads DivorceCare sessions at PCUMC. These sessions are open to the public. Lori understands the need for DivorceCare having gone through divorce herself in 1993. "I felt as though my entire world was shattered at the time of my divorce, losing all hope for the future" stated Lori. "Today, all bitterness and anger is replaced with forgiveness and hope. There is life after divorce."
