2012 10 22 – Chronic Illness Brings Challenges: The Human Spirit Brings Resiliency

Hello friends in southern Alberta:

Here is your invitation to a free presentation by a wonderful speaker:

“Chronic Illness Brings Challenges: The Human Spirit Brings Resiliency.”

This session will explore the unfolding drama in the human spirit between hope and despair as one faces the many losses that come with a chronic illness. A proverb states that “the spirit of a person can sustain them in their infirmity but a wounded spirit who can bear?” The meeting of three universal spiritual needs does much to add to the resiliency of our spirit.  We need relatedness and belonging, meaning and purpose and at times forgiveness and reconciliation. The body may face decline day by day but thankfully the spirit can be renewed day by day.


Rev. Bob Glasgow is the former non-denominational chaplain of the Rockyview Hospital and the founder of the recently named Bob Glasgow Grief Support Program (located at the Richmond Road Diagnostic and Treatment Centre.)  He is presently in private practise and speaks widely on subjects related to suffering and spirituality. The topic of chronic illness is an experienced one for Bob as he was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 8.

Bob will bring Kelly Ryan to share in this session as one who has traversed many challenges in her journey with a lifetime of facing into illness. Her spirit inspires others to learning and growth.

Hope Lutheran Church ~ 3527  Boulton Rd. NW
