I had a meeting this week with our ministry coordinator about starting a ministry for members who are grieving. As was the case for my family and I, many have lost family members who don't belong to our church and some may have to travel out of town for the funeral. Some may lose loved ones and for whatever reason, can't get away to attend the funeral. But just because their loved ones weren't members at our church, they still grieve. It seems that when the funeral for a member's loved one is not held at our church, they seem to fall through the cracks and get overlooked by the pastoral staff. I know I have experienced this on more than one occasion. I don't want anyone else to experience what I felt...neglect during an already difficult time. Grief is too great a burden to bear alone.
