"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." This Bible verse from Matthew 5:4 is the inspiration for some of us here at Westminster Presbyterian Church who have lost a loved one to reach out in Christian love to others who have also suffered a loss.
Matthew 5:4 meets on a regular monthly basis at the church, members' homes, or locations relevant to the planned program or activity. Meetings are for the purpose of fellowship, information sharing, education, and inspiration and are aimed at providing support and mentoring to those who are in various stages of the grief process. Members provide input on topics of interest and areas of need that is used in planning the programs.
It is our hope that our shared experiences will enable us to comfort one another by providing a listening ear, a caring heart, and a compassionate presence to those who are grieving.
