Dealing with loneliness

Do you feel lonely?

I think it’s safe to say, everyone feels  lonely more or less, at one time or another, sometimes or all the times.

We can feel lonely even in the midst of a big crowd, among families and friends.  We can feel lonely even living in material abundance.

We can be lonely when we live alone.  We can be lonely when we feel misunderstood or not understood. We can be lonely when we have reached the top of the mountain or the pinnacle of worldly success. We can be lonely when we feel empty inside despite of our fullness on the outside.

More people feel lonely during the holidays.

Whatever the reason is for you to feel lonely, understand that you are not alone. And there are ways to deal with loneliness.

Loneliness is the topic of the current message series on this coming weekend at Eagle Brook Church. Holidays bring more family tension, stress and loneliness. That’s why the current series focuses on these common issues.

I think everyone can benefit from this message on dealing with loneliness. Here is the link: http://vimeo.com/81927216

Eagle Brook Church has 6 campuses in Twin Cities, including one campus in Woodbury at East Ridge High School. The Woodbury Campus usually offers four services total on Saturdays and Sundays. But it can change due to the space availability and demand. This weekend there are only two services on Sundays at 9 and 11 am. There will be seven services on the following weekend plus Monday and Tuesday before Christmas for the Christmas celebration.

    I don’t really feel lonely. Although, I am alone . . . but I am content. I just basically wanted to complain (without being toxic:) about Yahoo email. I can no longer sign out without an advertisement getting in my way.

    Take care,
    Steve

      Being alone is not the same as being lonely. You can be alone and feel content and not lonely. On the other hand, you can also be in a big crowd and feel very alone and lonely. Glad you are in the first category.

      Yes, Yahoo is getting worse. Surprised that Yahoo doesn’t respond to the avalanche of customer complaints with real action.
