Grief and loss are parts of living. None of us escape. How can you console someone when words can never be enough? In The Gift of Encouragement, author Marjorie Thompson offers practical help to give confidence and skill to pastors, Stephen ministers, congregational caregivers, and other persons serving those who need comfort. With a central message on the importance of simply being there, Rev. Thompson combines practical how-to s with ways for pastors to introduce the spiritual disciplines for more hopeful and satisfied living. The book will contain prayers, scriptures, ways to think about the sacraments, suggestions for how to begin practicing spiritual disciplines, and thoughts about how faith in God gives encouragement in times of loss. This small book gives real ways to help through making visits, writing notes, finding scriptures and prayers to read, avoiding cliches, and thinking through the presence of God in dark and searching times.
