Good Grief (Grief & Bereavement)

This ministry facilitates dialogue and explores issues of experienced and anticipatory loss. A bio-psychosocial approach is used to address issues of anticipating the death of a loved one or with those who have already experienced the death of a loved one. The role of spirituality and one’s relationship with God in the bereavement and grief process is discussed. Participants meet regularly and engage in on-going discussion regarding how loss is dealt with emotionally, socially, mentally, and spiritually.
