We’re offering a brand new online course that’s free to our email newsletter subscribers. It’s called “Charting a Course Through Grief,” and it’s all about providing much-needed perspectives on dealing with the pain of loss. It’s not easy to talk about, but we need to. Not far beneath the shiny facade of the smiley “how-you-doing?-I’m-fine” version of American happiness, we all know that darkness, loneliness, and real pain are there.
This course doesn’t take the place of counseling, therapy, or the healing of loving encounters with God and friends and family. But there are words—beautiful words—and ideas and stories that provide for us companions for our journeys of grief.
And it’s right in line with our goal to continue to seek Christian wisdom for life’s biggest questions. So we’ve curated an email-based course that brings a weekly variety of perspectives on depression, disability, disease, and death—bringing Christian resources for healing and growth within, through, and despite these painful events of life. We’re developing new content, and dusting off old content, as well as providing helpful resources and references for continued education and exploration.
“Charting a Course Through Grief” is totally free for both existing and new subscribers, so sign up on this page, and you’ll get the first of eight installments right away (two per week for four weeks).
We don’t see eye to eye on everything; but all of us will someday encounter deep personal suffering. So here is an opportunity for us to learn, pray, meditate, and open up to the opportunities for growth in the face of suffering.
Thanks for reading, listening to, and watching The Table. And may you somehow find peace, gentleness, and love on your journey of grief.
