GRIEFSHARE’S CONTENT – COMFORT, ANSWERS, AND HOPE
GriefShare is a 13-session program. At each meeting, participants learn about grief-related issues. The topics covered during those 13 sessions can be grouped into the following thematic categories:
COMFORT (Sessions 1–5)
ANSWERS (Sessions 6–9)
HOPE (Sessions 10–13)
While it’s ideal for group members to attend all 13 sessions, each weekly session is designed to be “open,” meaning a person can begin attending at any time. Members will find comfort, answers, and hope in every session!
COMFORT: SESSIONS 1–5 Many grieving people feel like they are going crazy. They are unprepared for the intensity of their emotions and the duration of their grief. The first five sessions of GriefShare comfort participants by helping them realize that their experiences of grief are normal. These sessions also describe what participants should expect to experience (emotionally, relationally, physically, and spiritually) as they move along the journey of grief. This information stabilizes them, helps them realize they’re okay, and prepares them for what lies ahead.
ANSWERS: SESSIONS 6–9 The members of your group will have a lot of questions. Many will be facing unique and challenging circumstances. It’s important they receive answers to their questions and solutions to their problems; otherwise, they won’t heal from their grief. That’s why Sessions 6–9 focus on giving your group answers. Participants hear answers to the “why” questions and sound advice on how to handle the circumstances and emotions that complicate grief, and they discover practical ways to avoid getting stuck in grief.
HOPE: SESSIONS 10–13 The last four sessions of GriefShare point forward. They give group members a vision of how God can use their grief in positive ways and offer hope for what the future holds. These sessions explain important lessons of grief, what heaven is like, and how to move forward without leaving behind the memory of their loved one.
