Here are some of the incredible resources that came up during class this week –
Dan mentioned C S Lewis’s A Grief Observed…
“We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, ‘Blessed are they that mourn,’ and I accept it. I’ve got nothing that I hadn’t bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.”
― C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
Peggy’s picks: The Grace in Aging, Kathleen Dowling Singh; and Fr. Richard Rohr ( see his site here)
Gretchen’s fav – Nadia Bolz-Weber – her site here
Also mentioned was Steve Wildsmith – local journalist and recovering addict. He pulls no punches, and can be devastating – try this on for size.
Look for a post tomorrow for this Sunday’s adventure…John
