This week in our series on mental health, we turn our attention to grief.
Grief is complicated. Unresolved grief can affect every area of our lives, from our mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing. In this week's message, Pastor Diane Rutledge dissects the complexity of working in and through personal grief, supporting someone going through grief, and how Jesus' words and actions can move someone toward hope, health, and healing.
Below is a list of questions designed to help you continue the conversation at a personal, community group, and broader Church level. A few of these questions remain consistent every week. You are welcome to answer one, answer all, and/or supplement additional questions based on individual needs.
- Who do you know that is impacted by grief?
- When you come across someone who is wrestling with grief, how do you respond?
- What are your beliefs about how Jesus would respond?
- Where can you focus on being more loving toward people struggling with grief?
Following each conversation of this series, our hope and prayers are that anyone who is or knows someone struggling with mental health, including mental illness, can find the support and resources they need to obtain hope, health, and healing. A list of resources has been compiled to help this journey.
