Mourning

American Christians don’t mourn well. It makes us uncomfortable. We withdraw. We are left alone. Our isolation during our most painful moments is unbearable. We are a haunted people, having hidden ourselves away as others withdrew during our most vulnerable moments.

Our coming to light and community will be through grieving what is lost. It will be through learning to mourn together in a community. It will be through coming along side each other in grief.

Grief will not be a disease or a weakness. Mourning will be a beautiful and intimate process we go through together. We will love in the darkest of times and bring His life into suffering. Christ Himself will complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, strengthen, and settle you (1 Peter 5:10 AMP).

  1. Hey there, I know you don’t know me, but I’m a friend of Heidi Knight’s and I came across your blog. I just wanted to tell you that your words really resonate with me. Your passion for Christ is so evident through what you write and I think that’s just really refreshing. Anyway, hope to hear back from you.
