Intergenerational Conversations on Loneliness

Intergenerational Conversations on Loneliness

A Three Part Series via ZOOM

Even before COVID-19, loneliness was being reported by a frighteningly large number of Americans across generations. Loneliness is not limited to folks who are alone. It is felt by people in a variety of social demographics and can impact everything from our physical health to our hope. Join us for a 3-week inter-generational conversation on the topic of loneliness. We’ll examine why loneliness is hard to talk about, how it affects different generations, and how our faith can offer a hope-filed perspective for loneliness. Our initial class will include a talk with author Jason Gaboury, with follow up discussions on his work, other stories, and our own experiences.

Whether you have experienced loneliness yourself or have a child, parent, or friend who is lonely, this conversation is better with you in it and we want all ages represented!
Monday nights, October 12, 19 & 26, from 6:30 – 8:00 on Zoom. Let’s learn about loneliness as we make each other a little less lonely.

 

Part One | October 12th

Author Jason Gaboury will join us for a conversation on finding God in loneliness.

Learn More about Jason

“To be human is to be lonely.” When his seventy-something spiritual director Friar Ugo spoke these words in a voice cracking with age, Jason Gaboury felt a deep sense of their truth.

To the observer, Jason, a campus minister, active church member, and father with a young family, might not have seemed lonely. But it’s how he felt. He has wrestled with loneliness ever since he can remember, perhaps before he can remember . . . through childhood, college, and into adulthood.

When Friar Ugo challenged him to see loneliness as a context for friendship with God, things began to change. In these pages God invites you to stop and wait with him in your own moments of isolation and anxiety. It’s an invitation into a journey through loneliness into a deeper life with God.
