Mourning to Morning Bereavement Support
Of all the things we have had to temporarily suspend, it has been a great sadness to me to be unable to offer our Mourning to Morning bereavement support series.
No one has been untouched by this pandemic that has so drastically changed our way of life. And while some things can be altered or put on hold, mourning the loss of loved ones not only continues but can be intensified by the fact that many are doing it in isolation. Nicholas Woltersoff, author of Lament for a Son wrote,
“To comfort me, you have to come close. Come sit with me on my mourning bench.”
As we begin to slowly open our doors for worship and ministry, regular meetings of any size are still being put on hold. However I would like to invite anyone who is mourning the loss of a loved one, and would like to sit and talk, to call the parish office and set up a time for a one-on-one meeting. You can share your stories and I will share some thoughts that will hopefully help you through this very difficult journey. In the meantime, I wish you God’s peace-
