In these days of the pandemic, when we are disoriented and often finding ourselves fearful and anxious, there is something more happening inside us. We are grieving. My publisher, Paraclete Press, asked me to partner with another grief author, Khris Ford, a spiritual director and experienced grief counselor, to do a special webinar addressing this. We offer some important assumptions about grief, whether it is individual grief or grief that is experienced as a community. Discussion focuses on “grief brain,” ambiguous loss, anticipatory grief, and resilience. We also offer suggestions for ways that families, individuals, and larger groups can share in this communal experience of loss and of finding hope.
