Balancing ongoing, serious needs of family members with one’s own life can be an endless challenge. How do we handle changes in relationships due to illness? How do we find a sense of rest amid the demands of caring for a parent, spouse or child?  Come for a morning of support, spiritual comfort and hope as we learn to hold God at the center of our own lives even as we care for others.
