Dealing with Grief, Stress, and Anxiety, and the Emotional Toll of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has left many people emotionally vulnerable, with feelings that are difficult to process. It has been devastating for many; everyone has experienced loss in some way, including loss of loved ones, financial stability, community, control, and grief is a natural result.

What is grief all about?

Do you feel you are free to grieve? Do you have the resources to do so?

Join the discussion on September 22 with our distinguished panelists, Rabbi Steven Leder, Senior Rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, and Dr. Andrew Farley, lead pastor of The Grace Church and host of The Grace Message with Dr. Andrew Farley, as we discuss these questions and more. Moderated by Matthew Polka, President and CEO, ACA Connects, these leaders will share their insights on topics such as:

· Trusting God in the midst of a pandemic

· Learning to process your emotions in a healthy way

· Demonstrating God’s love to those who are grieving

· Understanding the healing power of forgiveness

· Counting your blessings and giving thanks in all things

Explore how God can work through the pandemic to change our lives, and the lives of those around us, for the better.
