Silent Night Support
Thursday, Dec 24, 2020, Christmas Eve from 3:00 - 3:45 PM EST
Are you silently grieving a loss? For those missing a loved one this Christmas Eve, all is NOT calm and bright.
Silent Night Support is a virtual meeting to honor and speak of the people in our lives that we love but
can't be with this Christmas Eve.
The loss you or your family is experiencing does NOT have to be due to the death of a loved one.
Please attend if you are grieving a loved one you can't be with for any reason. It could be addiction,
incarceration, or untreated mental health issues, among other unfortunate situations.
This is a non-religious event and all are welcome.
Come to honor your loved one and find a few moments of comfort amongst the chaos.
If you would like to participate in the family-friendly grief activity that will be demonstrated,
please have the following available:
Small candle - electronic candles are better for young children
A clear glass jar candle holder
Clear modge podge
Tissue paper in different colors
A photo of the loved one (optional)
Words cut from a magazine that honor the loved one
Take care of yourself, find a moment of comfort and share your loss with others who can hold it with you this Christmas Eve. This special event will be hosted by Beth Tyson, MA, a psychotherapist, grief and trauma
specialist, and "motherless mom". She created Silent Night Support because she wants to offer you a
space to express your grief and connect with others on this tender night.

What if our crisis could become a catalyst for flourishing without ignoring our deep human need for
lament and grief? What if we grant ourselves permission to name our grief and suffering, give it air to
breathe, find God’s presence in our pain, and entertain the possibility that hope can help us heal?
Join psychologists, therapists, theologians, authors, ministers, researchers, thought leaders, survivors, patient advocates, care givers, and practitioners to explore areas of grief, Christian spirituality, and what it means to be tethered to hope that remains. Together we will examine the universal nature of grief, how it impacts our lives in body, soul, spirit, relationships, and community, and the invitation to be formed by Christ in the midst of difficulty. Tethered will not explain away your grief or help you to “get over" it—quite the opposite. Tethered will help you open your heart to grief, listen to what it’s trying to teach you, and support you as you connect with the presence and promise of God while still in the midst of your journey to healing. God cares about you as a whole person.
This is about being undone and remade while staying tethered to hope.
Dates: October 21-25, 2020
Format: On-demand video sessions (Sessions are approx. 30-45 min each)
Cost: Free (Free access ends October 26)
Tech: Watch on any device
Community: Access to Tethered support community
