As we headed out the door last night for the first GriefShare session at our church, I had a full box of Kleenex with me to replace the empty one in the van. Emily took one look at that box and said, "I'm glad I'm not going to that!"
Truth is, I did need a few tissues at that session, but it was good. I am grateful that our church (especially Pastor Jana) is eager to do whatever is needed to help. Foundry was more than willing to invest in setting up a small group devoted to ministering to those in the midst of grief. Our situation may have prompted the endeavor, but I know that this group will provide something that is much-needed in our community--an opportunity for healing through Christ.
