We can’t come to a retreat.
Do you have any suggestions for us?
Yes. We urge you to visit a Griefshare group or two in your area. GriefShare is a small group ministry for grieving people hosted in 12,000 churches around the country. We are the hosts on the videos shown at the meetings. At a GriefShare group you will receive two important things—wisdom and expertise provided by the video teaching, as well as the companionship of other people also going through loss. It will be a safe place to talk about the loss of your child. The thing we hear most often about GriefShare is, "GriefShare saved my life."
You may want to visit a couple of groups as you may find that one group or one facilitator is a better fit for you than another. To find a GriefShare group in your area go to www.griefshare.org and input your zip code. The names of churches in your area that host GriefShare groups will come up along with information about when and where their groups meet, and contact information for the facilitator.
