Rev. Dr. Leanne Hadley spoke several times on this over those two days of the Beyond Conference. She held a train the trainers Zoom conference last week saying that we must adapt our HOLY LISTENING! Grief is coming! Churches and community members will lose the COVID 19 battle and people are not going to be able to mourn as they once did due to no attendance funerals. Grief is important and just calling on the phone you will likely get an "I'm okay" from a child and a "Fine" from a teen.
Using listening stones gives symbols to feelings and helps people find the words they are feeling. Get your youth director, your pastor, a Stephen's Minister and yourself signed up on April 7 for the Zoom Webinar on how this all works. Rev. Dr. Michelle Morris will mediate as Katie McLean and I share what we learned on how to use our phones and talk with people through their grief.
