Session 1 The Role of Anticipatory Grief and Mourning in Loss Ministry
How do you invite people into deeper conversations when they are grieving? Pastor Rick Bergh will expand your understanding of loss and provide tools to help you engage families who are going through challenging times of transition. What would it mean for them to experience the “peace that passes all understanding” in their circumstances? How can you help them?
Session 2 The Importance of What We Miss and How We Remember
How did Jesus engage his disciples and prepare them for their grief and mourning prior to his death? Pastor Rick Bergh will look at how Jesus used story and unfolding narrative to help his disciples cope with their grief before He ascended to the Father. Come and learn about this powerful skill set that will help you ask the right questions and enable you to enter into the most significant stories in people’s life.
