No Hard Feelings?
Jodie Nielsen

October Bible Study is “No Hard Feelings?” by Anna Madsen. Session two: “The Ache of Grief.”

Text: Psalms 25:12–22, 77, 126 and Lamentations 2:10–22, 5:19–22 (source: gathermagazine.org).

Prayer: “God of life, we have been, are, or will be in pain—our own or that suffered on behalf of and with others. Grant us courage to name our griefs; help us be a community to support those in grief; and remind us that while grief is real, your promise of life is even more so. We ask all this in the name of your Son, who put death to death. Amen.”

We have two WELCA Board positions opening in January: Vice President and Treasurer. It is not too early to prayerfully consider putting your name in for these positions. Let me know ( jodie.nielsen@gmail.com) if you have any questions regarding these openings.
