Walking with grief

Walking with grief, a poem

Do not hurry

as you walk with grief;

it does not help the journey.

Walk slowly,

pausing often:

do not hurry

as you walk with grief.

Be not disturbed

by memories that come unbidden.

Swiftly forgive;

and let Christ speak for you

unspoken words.

Unfinished conversation

will be resolved in Him.

Be not disturbed.

Be gentle with the one

who walks with grief.

If it is you,

be gentle with yourself.

Swiftly forgive;

walk slowly,

pausing often.

Take time, be gentle

as you walk with grief.

Please join us on Tuesday, November 2 at 7pm for our All Souls Service. All Souls Day is when we remember the saints who have died, but whom we are still connected to through Jesus Christ. We will gather to remember those we have lost. There will be a time during the service to light a candle in honor of your loved one and name aloud or in silence the saints who no longer walk this earth.
