The Grief and Gratitude series is based on a podcast series on the Allender podcast.
Eric: Grief and Gratitude are always about loss…you are actually always losing because you are moving forward. Ie: Babies don’t stay babies: this can be a loss and maybe even grief. And more intense losses of spouses, countries, friends, etc. In the world of psychology there are many processes of grief. We've studied it to death! Aren’t grief and gratitude hard to put together? Gratitude will emerge as we move closer to the resurrection (Easter).
