The Struggle is Real: Grief
Matthew 5:4
Communion this week!

Hey REVIVE!
 
This is the final week in "The Struggle Is Real" series! This week Perry Ross is speaking about grief. If you haven't heard Perry speak before, you're in for a treat! If nothing else, come for his kick-(you-know-what) mustache.
 
We constantly grieve small things... I'm still not over Starbucks' discontinuation of Oprah Chai earlier this year. (Ok, ok... but still. I LOVED it!) Then there are the things that stop life as we know it - the end of a relationship, the termination of a job, an unexpected life transition, or the death of a loved one.
 
Last night as I was eating with a friend, I said something that stopped me in my tracks. I had unwittingly said a phrase that a deceased family member used to say, and the memory and pain of that death came flooding in. Time froze for a moment and I had to blink away the tears that sprang to my eyes.
 
Grief is like that, isn't it? An unexpected wash of memory, a momentary freeze, and I'm lost in a moment - no matter how many years have passed.
 
What we're talking about this week isn't just about death, although that is definitely a part of it. Come hear more about this topic that impacts all of us in big and small ways, and what Jesus wants us to know about it. I can't wait!

PS - Heads up! Next week is Holy Week, which means REVIVE is worshiping at the Maundy Thursday service in the Worship Center at 7:00 pm! We'll sit on the far left side of the Worship Center. Come early to get seats together! Then we're headed out for an AfterParty!  
 
PPS - Come back the next day for Good Friday! (Services at noon and 7:00 pm). I'll be speaking on one of the last seven words of Jesus along with other teaching pastors at Hope. It's a powerful service that helps us to not only remember what Jesus has done, but celebrate Easter more fully!
