Had the privilege of being part of a Companions in Grief workshop on Saturday. About a dozen folks, mostly from New Hope, but also from the community came to learn how to better care for people in seasons of grief and sorrow.
When it came time to talk about grieving and faith, I shared this video from Brené Brown and produced by The Work of the People. Thought it should have a wider audience, so I'm posting it here. Listen how Brené talks about her own faith, suffering, forgiveness and grief. She covers a lot in less than 7 minutes!
Special thanks go to Leslie Clemensen and Karrie Filios for organizing and leading this workshop. I'm proud to be part of a congregation where people volunteer to learn how to lean into the places of pain and care for those who are hurting.
