Dear Austin Parker,
Because of the number of elderly people in our congregation, many families have experienced the death of a loved-one. It is easier to bear the pain of loss if it is shared with others.
As such, I suggest that we form a small support group for families who have lost a loved-one, and we permit them to meet every Monday at the church library. To show my commitment to this program, I am offering to be the very first member and volunteer of this support group.
