A Simple, Powerful Way to Care for People Who Are Grieving Journeying through Grief is a set of four short books to send to people at four crucial times during the first year after the loss of a loved one. Author Kenneth C. Haugk writes in a warm, caring style, with short, easy-to-read chapters.   The emotional wound was deep and hurt for many months. When well-meaning friends remarked, “We’re so happy your mom is in heaven!,” I became angry. Without their realizing it, they were trying to short-circuit my grief. It was then I realized grief was a necessary part of emotional healing. A search of books on Bereavement and Loss will show you that thousands of grief books have been written. The majority of these books are either the stories of different people’s struggles with their losses, or books that offer intellectual reasons to deal with this most painful of emotional issues. Neither of these offers any real assistance to new grievers struggling with their own pain. If the answer is yes, support the ministry that is already in place. Familiarize yourself with the five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Read the classic book by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross "On Death and Dying" or peruse a website that deals with the stages of grief.

  Helping Those in Grief is a biblical, practical guide to pastoral counseling written by one of the most respected Christian therapists of our time. This book is the next step after Wright’s best-selling The New Guide to Crisis and Trauma Counseling. Bereavement ministry performs a number of tasks and hold various responsibilities vital to helping bereaved church members deal with their loss while they pass through the stages of grief. Understanding the duties of the bereavement ministry will help you determine if, in the unfortunate event of a loss, you would benefit from its aid. A minister once told us, "Grief counseling is one of the hardest things we do in the ministry. Sometimes words are not enough. My seminary did not prepare me for this process." This section will provide you with an understanding of grief and how to help those who are hurting. Printable Version link at .
