Presented by

The Reverend Marian Eisenmann

This unique presentation offers new perspectives on the grieving process as well as practical suggestions for supporting others in their grief.  Drawing on her own experiences as a nurse, pastor, and hospital chaplain, Marian Eisenmann uses her love of storytelling to inspire and educate others in the area of grief ministry. In addition to new insights on grief and loss, participants will gain helpful “tools” and suggestions for facilitating support groups and bereavement ministry in their own faith communities.
Part 1.  “Finding Hope in the Midst of Grief”
Part 2. “Sharing Hope with Those Who Grieve”
