Session 1: Grief and Loss - Dealing with Grief while Grieving


January 19, 2021

1:30 – 3:00 PM

Webinar via Zoom


2020 has been a year of significant loss. As the pandemic continues to impact the ways in which we live, interact, and worship, we will continue to experience significant grief collectively and in our own lives. As ministry professionals, you may be feeling challenged in ways that you never have been before. We invite you to join LeaderWise therapists, Rev. Sarah Parker and Dr. Drew Benson, as well as your ministry colleagues, to explore some of the following topics:


  • How is grief presenting in both familiar and unique ways during this time?

  • How can one be present to one’s own experiences while being asked to be present to the pain of others? 

  • How can one maintain a sense of hope when surrounded by hopelessness and despair?


Registration is open on the websites of Missouri Union and Northern Kansas Presbyteries.


Note: This program is brought to you through a partnership of the Presbyteries of the Synod Mid-America, a grant from the Omaha Presbyterian Seminary Foundation, and the Presbyterian Mission Agency of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).  Pastoral leaders from the presbyteries of the Synod of Mid-America are invited to attend any or all sessions of interest to them personally and/or to their ministry settings.

NOTE: You will be sent a Zoom link to the webinar upon completion of registration
