TVC Women's Ministry Summer Sessions: Seasons of Change
Please join us for part two of our panel discussion series on the topic of the parent and adult child relationship. We’ll look at the beauty, intricacies and struggles within the relationships between parents and adult children. You’ll get fellowship, seasonal cuisine and some good information. Food for thought and for your belly!
The sessions will consist of a panel-led discussion from a diverse group of TVC ladies who not only have real-life experience, but more importantly draw from a deep desire to have all relationships rooted in God's love and truth. We don’t have it all figured out, we’re just "working out our faith with fear and trembling." However, together within God's community we can grow through education and honesty and a shared desire to help others whenever we can however we can. Even if you aren't currently in this stage of life, you can still glean some good information from the discussion.
Session Two: The Long Walk Home — the Adult Child and Elderly Parent Relationship
Wednesday, July 18
6:30-8:30 pmthe Family Room at TVC Main
(finger foods and dessert provided)
Some of us are already familiar with the tightrope walk that is assisting our aging parent. Others will experience it sooner rather than later. How do we balance trying to give them a voice, some space and dignity with the fact that they now need more care from us? And as the relationship shifts and we find ourselves parenting our parents, how do we mourn those changes and prepare for the ones to come? In this season, questions start to arise like, “Do they need to move out of their home?” “How do I share concerns and responsibility with siblings and extended family?” “What is the next step in the long-term plan?” “Who is helping me as I help them?” and “How do I share God's love with them in this stage of life?”
