Session Description

Nearly a decade ago, What Was Lost: A Christian Journey Through Miscarriage was written as a personal and pastoral response to a dearth of Christian resources for a loss that is complicated emotionally, communally, and spiritually. Awareness has increased over the past ten years, but persons continue to struggle to fi nd faithful honoring of a common but often unspoken grief (nearly one in four pregnancies will end in miscarriage). In this workshop, author Elise Erikson Barrett will facilitate a conversation about how the church accompanies women and families who have lost pregnancies.
