Grief is nothing to be ashamed of

Psalm 77: 5-15

Kevin Powell
First Lutheran Church
Calgary, AB

With the ongoing de-ritualization of our culture, people have less and less times and places to grieve but grieving is not weakness. Grieving is hard work. Grief is not a pathology. Grief is normal and healthy. And grief certainly does not mean you don’t have enough faith.

If there’s one thing the church has done really well, it’s shame. Unfortunately, it isn't relieving shame from people. Rather it heaps shame on people. Pastor Kevin Powell speaks to how shame effects our relationship with each other and with God.

First Lutheran Church

Identifying the loneliness epidemic is vital for our social well being as a community but it’s a topic of conversation that Christians have been uncomfortable having and need to have. As a church we are in a unique place to address the loneliness epidemic because the opposite of loneliness isn’t connection, the opposite of loneliness is belonging.
