What We Believe
Our co-founders regularly met to share their faith and their experiences in serving those in the process of grief and mourning. They agreed to design a model of bereavement which would contain the following components of faith and understandings:
Faith is a source of comfort and strength. All faith traditions value grief and mourning.
Grief is both a leveler and a uniter, bringing together persons from diverse faith traditions and backgrounds.
The pain of grief is intense and lingering, calling for on-going support.
Personal stories possess the power to inspire and encourage.
Fellowship and the breaking of bread instills hope and provides comfort.
