Blessed are those who trust in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. Jeremiah 17:7 NRSV

Thought

Sharing your story within the sanctity of a group of people who know the experience of death and grief may assure you that are not alone in your loss. In a safe community of mutual trust, you find support and encouragement as you seek a life of renewed hope and joy after your personal experience of grief. When others who understand extend the lifeline of trust, you are certain that you are heard and understood.

Prayer

God, you are the source and resource of all trust. You are my trust. Amen.

Assurance

I will share with others who understand the sacred bond of trust in grief.
