Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted. Mt. 5:4
If we are to be Jesus for others then we need to be there for those who have lost a loved one. While we try to comfort at the funeral home and the days immediately following a death, as time passes by it grows increasingly difficult. Very soon those who mourn find that others no longer mention the loved one as though you are no longer in need of comfort. But grief does not suddenly go away. We do not move on immediately. We find there is no timetable for grief, but that we still need comfort for some time to come.
The Ministry of Consolation offers this program several times a year to help you in your mourning. Please consider joining us to share conversation about your loved ones and learn more about what we encounter as we mourn. Feel free to call us and talk.
