I am so thankful this is the approach they followed. The church needs to address exactly these hard topics. We need to hear from those who have lived through it and do so through the lense and light of Scripture!

From the download, you can also see there are passages of Scripture for meditation, hymn suggestions, prayers, and additional resources at the end. PERFECT!

This, right here, is diaconal writing and I pray it can comfort and equip many! Woo hoo! This makes me want to make a Lutheran resource page listing . . . hmm, what? Human care resources? Topical resources!

Spread the word. Seriously. Too many have suffered from miscarriage. Get it for your church library and your regular library, too! Woo hoo!
