YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Support Through Hardship
We offer support in daily living and at times of crisis. It is our hope that we can be helpful in walking with you through the difficult task of making sense of life’s challenges and finding a way forward.
When you or a loved one are at your most vulnerable, we want to be a place where you can turn for support. Whether you are already in the hospital or if you know in advance about an upcoming procedure, we want to help.
When you need help on your spiritual journey, we're here for you. Every journey worth taking will have questions and doubt. We welcome skeptics, outcasts, and the excluded. All are welcome and have a home here.
While we desire to be there for you during all parts of your life, sometimes other professionals might be better equipped to meet your needs. We have a trusted network of providers and will do our best to connect you with the appropriate services.
LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN HELP
I give you a new command:
Love each other deeply and fully.
Remember the ways that I have loved you,
and demonstrate your love for others in those same ways.
THE NEW HAPPY on "Connection"
One of the leading researchers in loneliness, John Cacioppo, argued that loneliness is like an emotional hunger cue:
Our stomachs growl with hunger when they need food.
Our hearts growl with loneliness when they need connection.
There are a lot of myths about loneliness. We tend to associate it with things like being shy, isolated, elderly, or single. But studies have found that these do not cause loneliness.
Loneliness arises in tandem with real-life difficult situations: you're significantly more likely to be lonely if you're dealing with tough challenges like medical issues, depression, or unemployment. We all need to feel like there are people 'in it' with us. When we don't, our hearts growl for connection, love and support.
If your heart is growling, there's one surprising tool that can make a big difference: reach out and help someone else. Think about another person in your life who is dealing with a big challenge. Can you reach out and try to connect with them? In doing so, you can not only alleviate your loneliness, but theirs, too.
