Q
What if I’m not comfortable sharing with the group?

I’m not religious. Should I come?
A

Even though DivorceCare is based upon Christian principles, people from all faiths, and even those who are not religious, have found hope and healing attending. The practical advice from counselors, pastors, and health-care professionals apply to anyone.
