of ‘The Shack’ 

set for Tuesday


Dr. Larry Pillow with Fresh Start Now ministry will lead a discussion group centered on "The Shack" at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the home of Gail and Margie Jones, 1815 Stanley Russ Road.

Paul Young, author of "The Shack" recently shared his story at a fundraiser for Bethlehem House. 

Pillow said he realized Young’s talk and book has surfaced "pain from unfinished business in the lives of hundreds of Conway area residents."  He is convening a group to provide a "safe place with safe people" to not only help individuals process their pain but more importantly help them heal, establish a new identity and move forward.

Anybody is welcome and no registration or cost is involved.  For more information, contact Pillow at 327-2688 or freshstart@conwaycorp.net.   

If you cannot attend this group, contact Pillow about the possibility of facilitating a group for you.
