On Grief, Hope, and living at the Intersection
I read We Go On at the beginning of 2022 prior to knowing the grief that I would find myself walking in the rest of the year after the tragic death of a loved one and the death of many dreams. I found this book to be a safe haven of the battling tensions within my soul. In addition, for my work, I lead many volunteers, and in some cases, I find myself pastoring them through hard moments. This has become the first book I recommend to anyone grieving whether tangible or ambiguous. Grateful for your work, vulnerability, and care shown through this book.
It'll be two(2)years on the 25th of January, and yes, I've been in agony, but I understand that He is working it out and I just have to wait to see what that is. I so appreciate the book because it really helped me a lot. I enjoy your writing, & preaching. Just keep telling the truth and let the chips fall where they may. Let His will be done, & have the BEST day that you can! :)
Hey, John! I haven’t read the book yet, but I’m about to order it. In 2021 I went through several serious losses, and they were all very disorienting. The grief that I experienced was unlike anything I’d ever gone through. I want to grab this book to continue my healing journey. I’m grateful for this community that I’ve found.
