You are invited to ponder and discuss the following questions with your family, with small groups and committees, or on your own so what happens in worship can follow you, inspire you, and guide you throughout the week:
- When you hear the word grief, what image, name, or situation first comes into your mind?
- When have you felt anticipatory grief: that feeling we get about what the future holds when we’re uncertain?
- Have you ever felt closer to God, or felt filled with God’s love and grace, while you grieved? How did faith help your grief process?
