Station Five – A funeral home worker plays the violin in mourning

And never stops - at all

Emily Dickinson

Holy God,
You came into the world in the vulnerability of a human body. You know us in the womb and you know us at our end. We give thanks for the clergy, deacons, lay ministers, and church musicians who bring solace and comfort to families mourning in this time of pandemic. In Jesus’s name, we pray. Amen.

How have you mourned the lives lost during this time of separation and isolation?

Who and what helped you mourn?

In addition to the persons whom we have lost during the pandemic, many of us have experienced other losses during this time. If you have not done so, reach out and express your appreciation to the persons who have helped you grieve your losses and supported you in this time.
