All pastors preach and counsel during seasons of grief. Such grief may be personal, congregational, national, or global. Grief has many causes, locations, and contours. It may vary by object and intensity. This presentation explored multiple facets of grief with an eye toward helping participant preachers guide people through difficult seasons of life. The presentation pondered such topics as the nature and causes of grief, healthy and unhealthy forms of grief, biblical approaches to grief, and intelligent addresses to grief in worship and preaching.
