Sunday, Oct. 20 Community Center Kingston Serving 11 am to 2 pm bringused Ages 6-10:. $5 eyeglasses Friday & Satu Workshop on hopelessness and suicide St. John's Lutheran in Kimball Nov. 2 Very few of us have not been touched by the tragedy of sui- cide. Too often, despair and hope- !lessness lead people to take their lives. But even those who have never contemplated suicide expe- rience feelings of despair and hopelessness. Many suffer from depression. St. John's Lutheran Church of Kimball is hosting a workshop on Saturday, Nov. 2, which will address these difficult issues. The Rev. Peter Preus will lead a work- shop titled: "Speaking of Hope- lessness: When Believers Consider Suicide." Rev. Preus, pastor of The Lutheran Church of the Triune God in Maple Grove, Minn., is the author of "And She Was a Chris- tian - Why Do Believers Com- mit Suicide?" Pastor Preus' first wife, Jean, committed suicide in 1994. The workshop will address such question as: "Why do peo- ple commit suicide?" "Are there different kinds of hopelessness?" "What does it mean to despair?" "What may we say to the despair- ing and those who have thoughts of suicide? .... What if this per.son is a Christian? .... What shall I do if I have reason to believe that a loved one will attempt to end his or her life?" The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2, until 4:30 p.m. Lunch and breaks (with snacks) are included. The cost of registration is $10 for indi- viduals, $15 for couples. Regis- tration forms are available from St. John's. Call the church office at (320) 398-7151. The deadline for registration is Oct. 23. Copies of Pastor Preus's book will be available at the workshop. If you have any questions, please contact the St. John's church office (320) 398-7151, or the St. John's Parish Nurse, Carla Scheffert, at (320) 808-6164. Saturday, Oct. 26 9 a.m.-tp:m.
