Ministry of Presence: Healthy tips for showing up in a time of grief, crisis or trauma. Crisis: as a time of intense trouble, danger or difficulty. Trauma: a time of deeply distressing or disturbing experience. Grief: a time of profound sadness, loss and deep sorrow. Each and every day, millions of people are experiencing times of crisis, trauma and grief. It’s a significant part of life. Most of us feel ill-equipped to cope with our times of crisis, much less the times when our friends, family and communities experience deeply sad and difficult times. How can we respond? What are some healthy and respectful ways that we can show up and have a ministry of presence? Most of us want to rush to action and be a good “helper” and “doer”, but what do we need to do?

Episode 4 - Listening to God20/03/2017 Duración: 35min
Listening to God is not a science, but it might be an art form. One in which, we listen closely for the whisper of what we are being told and ultimately called to act on. For Genevieve and I, being open to the possibility of what God could and might do, has been the strongest threads in our faith story. Recently, we've both been challenged to put our stories together and give them publicly for the first time. It has been a very exposing and vulnerable experience. As a therapist, encouraging people to tell their stories, is often considered a form of therapy. Once we verbally articulate our story, it's out there. "Out there" can be scary, but also empowering. Once you've told your story, really heard it, you can examine it for deeper meaning. How might God be weaving together your story?
