Grief and Loss: Helping A Loved One Through It

How do you minister to a Christian or nonChristian on the anniversary of the loss of a loved one? :'(

  1. What Bible text(s) would you recommend?
  2. Do you have a favorite book you would give or author you would suggest he or she reads?
  3. Is there a certain place, movie or activity you would suggest?
  4. If the person were far or near, what would you, personally, do?
  5. Do you have a go-to-song or poem that helped you through your loss?
  6. Is there a suggested scenic picture or portrait you can or would recommend?

Any fresh thoughts for those with a loss? CM

    It will be an especially hard Christmas season for the Bush family I imagine losing both Barbara and George in the same year. Prayers for the family.

    Yes, I concur. It has been just 8 months since Barbara's death. The hope of the resurrection is the assurance in moving forward. CM
