Dealing with the guilt of absenteeism
Far-flung friends. Out-of-state siblings. Aging parents living hours away.
We live in a world where proximity to family and friends is no longer a given.
And then something happens. A death. A diagnosis. A disease you can’t see but is all too real.
What do we do? What CAN we do? And how does our faith play into our response?
This week at New Wineskins, we’ll talk about how we deal with the “out-of-sight-out-of-mind” syndrome and what to do with the very real feelings of guilt and inadequacy that can go along with them, whether we’re concerned about people half a world away, across the country, or just down the street.
Disclaimer: while we hope this conversation will be helpful, in no way should it be implied that we are offering any kind of diagnosis or professional advice.
Join us this Sunday, Oct. 27, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company to add your voice to what we hope will be a very important conversation.
Happy half-hour at 6:30pm, conversation starts at 7:00pm
