    Where are You God in the Midst of My Grief?

         Faith questions sometimes arise during the agonizing times after the death of a loved one. How can I pray when I hurt so much? What do I do when the ways I used to pray don’t work anymore? This session will help us see that God is not only the God of the sufferers, but the God who suffers, and can provide comfort to those in the midst of grief.

    Sessions are held in person and through Zoom.
