Our thoughts immediately spring to death when we speak of grief. That is true. When someone close to us dies, we go through a grieving process. It is a necessary part of life. However, death is not the only loss humans experience. Loss of a friendship, whether by a move or mutual agreement. Loss of a job, whether by firing, lay off or retirement. Even loss of a pet can send us into grief.
This ministry is to help identify the feelings of grief; not to avoid them, but to go through them with the Lord and lean on Him to help us through, not just get us out.
