FOS11 Chat Program Online Community Support Group
Faith, Hope, and Spirituality
"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."- Joseph Campbell
At times of loss and tragedy, we often ask, what is the role of faith and spirituality? For some people, there is a time of respite, a need to turn away. Yet others find their faith becomes stronger. We invite chat participants to share their experiences of faith and spirituality or the questions that have emerged in their absence. The chat will be held tonight, Wednesday, October 18, 2006, 8pm-9pm EDT.
This online chat session will provide 9/11 victims' families, survivors, first responders, and others affected by the attacks at the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, and Shanksville the opportunity to discuss issues and topics of importance in a safe, supportive environment. As a reminder, all participants must be FOS11 members (please see below on how to register as a member - membership is free). Dr. Donna Gaffney, a licensed mental health professional and noted trauma specialist, will facilitate the chat.
After you login, you will be able to choose an anonymous chat name (which will identify you in the chat room) and a password. Then, you will receive an email with a link to the chat. Tonight, October 18th, click on the link that is emailed to you and enter your chosen chat name and password. As a reminder, all participants must be 18 years of age or older and members of Families of September 11 (FOS11). To register as a FOS11 member, please click on the link at the bottom of this email.
