Resources: Loss

We all experience loss. We all long to walk alongside the grieving. But the complexity of loss can leave us not knowing where to turn.

Loss comes in many forms. We can lose loved-ones, homes, jobs, a sense of safety – and all those things hurt deeply. Walking alongside those who have lost is complex. The swirl of emotion, the range of responses, can leave us lost for words. But moving towards a brother or sister who has lost is a deep and Christ-like act of compassion. In the resources that follow, we hope you will find wisdom to move towards them well.
