Worship Matters: Episode 55 - Facing Grief and Loss, Part Two: Waking into Life

By Cynthia Wilson

The Worship Team concludes this miniseries on grief and loss with an amazing conversation with the Rev. Dr. Heather Murray Elkins. Dr. Elkins shares her wisdom gained from indigenous cultures and ancient texts that help us find ways of breaking through the walls of grief and the numbness that is often an instinctual reaction to loss, by waking others into life. In part this is paying attention to a world around us and in part it is letting others say their name. Listen in as we share this hope-filled transformative conversation.

To see more of Dr. Elkin’s work, go to her blog or find her YouTube channel “The Holy Stuff of Life."
