Gaining Support From A Church Family
This weekend I was able to travel back to my old neighborhood to attend the funeral of my neighbor Jim and to be there for his widow Louise during her time of sorrow. It was an occasion really of family, friends and support of a whole church community and seeing that made me grateful to be apart. Funerals can be a time of comfort, and of true support and respect.
I was particularly impressed with how the church community came together and supported one of their members by a attending the service and then bringing food over to my neighbors house for a gathering afterward. Church family can bring great comfort and support to those after a death of a loved one. Many church’s offer grief support groups so when looking for resources they can be as close as your community church.
