This morning at Calvary, as a conclusion to our Honest to God series, Pastor Beau Eckert engaged the conversation about how to walk through grief with others.
My Dad was one of the individuals in the panel, and they recorded the panel on the fifth month anniversary of my Mother’s death.
While my sister and I and our families have grieved the loss of my Mother, it is nothing like the loss of a spouse. So, I very much appreciate the authenticity my Dad has demonstrated as he goes through the journey of loss.
At different points I recorded my own thoughts on grief, whether seeking to remind myself of the hope we as believers have even when facing loss (Grieving with Hope), the knowledge that I may not have anything “meaningful” to say (When words are shallow), or what I learned as one going through loss (What to say and what not to say to those grieving).
