the Church’s one foundation

18 . September . 2011

a timely word from a wise friend
on helping each other
grieve, process, and
look to the good Shepherd
in this unprecedented season
in the life of our
west side church community:

1. listen

2. validate the person’s emotions

3. grieve with them

4. ask questions:
what’s the most difficult part about this for you?
what would be helpful to you in this?

5. steer them into truth.
the psalms, the gospel.

blessed be the Lord,
who daily bears our burdens,
our God is a god who saves.
psalm 68:19-20
