“Sorrow is not a destroyer of beauty. It’s ok to look up from the debris long enough to catch your breath on something beautiful.”
Cole Arthur Riley, @BlackLiturgies
What does it mean to heal from grief? Is it something we do alone, or is healing a communal effort? What does support look like for grieving people, and where do we go for that support? How do we support people we love who are grieving? These are some of the things we talk about in this second conversation about grief.
Some of the areas we discuss are the ways that churches show up (and don’t) when we are suffering a loss, how grief connects to the rituals of different religious seasons and practices, and some of the worst things people say in the face of a person’s loss.
