Grief is cumulative.
The grief that accompanies the season of Mother Day for those whose lives have been touched by fertility grief is always complicated. During this season of pandemic grief when every thing about every day is difficult, this grief that accompanies this season will be more pronounced. This grief is likely to feel even more overwhelming, perhaps more suffocating, than it might under other circumstances. Churches have the opportunity to anticipate this heightened level of grief – and to hold space for it.
Project Pomegranate has offered 3 outlines for “Hannah Services” – services to be held in the days before Mother’s Day to acknowledge the grief of those from whom Mother’s Day is difficult because of infertility, miscarriage, or infant loss.
This year, we offer a new resource as you consider what you might be able to offer online.
