“Dealing With a Hurt That Never Goes Away”
Sunday, September 8, 2019 is Grandparent’s Day here in the US. On this day we will have as our guest speaker for our monthly international seminar call Dr. John Killinger. The call will be on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 8 PM EDT.He will be speaking on the topic “Dealing with the Hurt that Never Goes Away”. This topic affects all alienated family members, not just grandparents. Dr. Killinger is in fact himself an alienated parent and grandparent.
He stated “I talk to four or five parents a week who are agonizing over their absentee son or daughter and the grandchildren they aren’t permitted to see. It’s a hurt like almost no other hurt—a sort of living death, a loss without closure. As I tell these parents, I’m one of you and I still haven’t found a good answer to our problem. Personally, I try to be there for other people as much as I can. It lessens my own pain and hopefully helps to alleviate some of theirs.”
We hope during this call those attending will find solace in being together and knowing Dr. Killinger himself understands the pain. He has a calming sense about him that seems to help and comfort those of us who have been on the several calls he has done for us. I hope you can join us.
Dr. John Killinger, noted author, minister, and professor, has pastored eight churches, including the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles and Marble Collegiate Church in New York City, and has taught at such major universities as Vanderbilt, Princeton, and Chicago. His wife Anne was the author of A Son Is a Son Till He Gets a Wife: How Toxic Daughters-in-Law Destroy Families, the book that spawned the alienated parents and grandparent movement in America. He himself has written more than 70 books, including three volumes of From Poppy with Love: Letters from a Grandfather to the Grandchildren He Isn’t Allowed to See. He has appeared on numerous radio and TV programs across the U.S., and served for many years as a special seminar leader for chaplains in all branches of the American Armed Forces.
