Nearly a decade ago, Elise Erikson Barrett wrote What Was Lost: A Christian Journey Through Miscarriage as her personal and pastoral response to a dearth of Christian resources for a loss that is complicated emotionally, communally, and spiritually. Awareness has increased over the past ten years, but persons continue to struggle to find faithful honoring of a common but often unspoken grief (nearly one in four pregnancies will end in miscarriage). In this workshop, Barrett facilitated a conversation about how the church accompanies women and families who have lost pregnancies.
