Judi Schwanz on Presence

People turn to their spiritual leaders in times of crisis and death. Thus, pastors have the privilege of walking alongside those who grieve. In Presence, Pastor Jon Twitchell shares lessons he has learned while walking with more than 350 families faced with the death of a loved one. Although every situation is as unique as the persons involved, Twitchell identifies key principles to help the pastor respond in any situation with grace. He provides practical help, as well as a theological foundation on which to base ministry to the grieving, which includes the whole faith community.
