More Meat by Susan L.
The meeting Wednesday night was done in small groups. A great way to meet others in the PREFER program. The topic was defining peer support with discussions around receiving and giving such. I walked away with an even deeper understanding. Mainly peer support happens whenever people meet. It doesn't have to be full of angst and difficulties. In my own life, standing in the grocery line waiting to check out has opened a door. My writer's group. Work, of course. Church. My neighbours. Peer support happens whenever there is a common element that allows us to relate, connect and communicate with the heart of another human being. Maybe it should be called "Life Support"! "What man is there among you who has one sheep, and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will not lay hold of it and lift it out?" Mt 12:11
