Resources for Christians and seekers
We've all heard--and occasionally offered--empty words of comfort in the face of overwhelming grief. In this study we seek to understand the nature of grief: the personal nature of grief, the universal nature of grief, and the unavoidable nature of grief, in a effort to deal with it more effectively.

We tend to associate grief primarily with major life traumas such as a death in the family, a divorce, or an illness. But grief may also emerge in response to any change or loss, including those that we might view as largely positive. Moving away from a place you have lived for years to begin a new job elsewhere, graduating from school, leaving home to get married--even though all of these events are normally considered to be positive life changes, they are still major changes, and as such they may entail mourning for friends, experiences, and places lost. Learning to grieve well means learning to recognize that losses, large and small, are occasions for grief as well as learning to deal in healthy ways with the never-ending presence of change and loss in our lives.

This one-session study invites participants to talk about suffering and where God is in suffering. They will explore helpful responses to suffering and how to help others who grieve.
