Hope in the Face of Grief, Part 2

Hope in the Face of Grief, Part 2

Sermon notes

If we are going to help people through grief, we are going to have to grow in our understanding of grief.

The goal is not to finish grief; it’s to move forward through grief.

Psalm 89:9

Grief doesn’t shrink. Instead, people grow.

The only way to grow through grief is together.

Romans 12:15-16

Galatians 6:2

When we run from hurting, we turn on backs on healing.

Share grief. Don’t compare grief.

Healing isn’t about one huge corrective emotional experience but a bunch of smaller more consistent ones.

Psalm 42:1-11

Psalm 43:3

When grieving, put your hope in God.
