Provide pastoral and spiritual support to those who are mourning a loss. God is a resource in our pain and heartbreak, in our sometimes desperate struggle to rebuild our lives. Perhaps knowing that you have friends with open arms to listen, talk, and walk with through your journey of loss, will allow you a glimpse of hope.

What is Grief?
- Grief is experienced in each of three major ways-
- Psychologically, through your feelings, thoughts,and attitudes.
- Socially, through your behavior with others.
- Physically through your health and bodily symptoms.
- Grief is a continuing development involving many changes over time. It will come and go, and appear different at different times.
- Grief is a natural, expectable reaction. In fact, the absence of it is abnormal in most cases.
- Grief is the reaction to all kinds of losses, job, pet, financial, loss of sight, hearing, limb, not just death
- Grief is based upon your unique, individualistic perception of the loss. It is not necessary for you to have the loss recognized or validated by others for you to experience grief
- Your grieving entails mourning not only the actual person person you’ve lost, but also the hopes, dreams, wishes, fantasies, unfulfilled expectations, feelings, and needs you had for and with that person.
