What does it mean to have “good grief”? As humans living in a fallen world, we will inevitably experience grief in our lives. As Christians, we are also called to “grieve with those who are grieving” (Romans 12:15). How should we think about grief? Grief has to do with loss: we feel it when we lose a loved one, but also when dreams feel shattered, plans fall through, jobs are lost, and relationships break apart. How do we have hope in the midst of grief? Let’s spend time discussing how to grieve wholly and well, and how to support others through their grief. We will talk about how God sees our tears (Psalms 56:8), and how He promises to never leave us alone in our sadness (John 14:16-18).
