As We Grieve
Discoveries of Grace in Sorrow
Loss knows no boundaries. It arrives on our doorsteps all gussied up in the cruelest of fashions. A person we cherish dies. Someone we love falls terminally ill. Another is snatched away by dementia. The presence of that absence is everywhere, said Edna St. Vincent Millay. Amazingly, it is precisely through these experiences that our hearts may feel buoyed by an unexpected embrace of grace.
In As We Grieve, author Jan Groft weaves together the voices of everyday people who, in the process of grieving, found hope, unveiling nine healing gifts of grace that can be discovered amidst the darkness. Their poignant stories illuminate the gifts memories, humor, strength, discovery, faith, art, wisdom, gratitude and community affirming that even amidst the heartache of loss, we can encounter amazing grace.
