Pastors will find it helpful to keep a quantity on hand to give to people during grief experiences and in grief counseling.
Did you know. . .Grief is the normal response of sorrow, emotion, and confusion that comes from losing someone important to you. The word "grief" comes from the same root as "grave."
Although many times focused only on emotional responses to loss, grief also has physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, and philosophical dimensions. Grief responses are influenced by personality, family, culture, and spiritual and religious beliefs and practices.
While many who grieve may be able to work through their grief independently, accepting additional support from counseling and support groups may promote the process of healing.
The Book of Ecclesiastes reminds us "For everything there is a season...
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance..."
