It has been said the journey of grief is one of pain and illumination. God invites us to position ourself on the grief journey to receive divine awareness and inspiration. Using divinely inspired insights from the journey of grief, we will explore God’s sustaining promises found in the Holy Scripture. With the truth of scripture as our guide, we journey into the profound mysteries in the Theology of Grief.
