From the Author
This book is the culmination of more than five years work, which has taken me on a long journey through the hidden grief of miscarriage, the tragedy of abortion, the anguish of neonatal death and the silent despair of childlessness.
I soon realised that this area of grief is almost entirely unrecognised. There are very few resources available for Christian clergy to underpin their pastoral care for families after a baby has died, whether during pregnancy or around birth. With the help of this book, priests and ministers of all the Christian denominations can also begin to meet this problem with simple and expressive liturgies of prayer and memorial, which the families themselves can help to create.
Through the ten years of this project, which I called Not out of Mind, I was contacted by Christian priests and ministers from all over the English-speaking world. Their creative approach to liturgy and their courageous efforts to create new and theologically sound ways of meeting this emerging area of pastoral care impressed me very much. I decided to gather them into a single volume for the whole world to be able to benefit from the liturgies they created. The material is organised in such a way that anyone can plan a service very simply and easily, even if they have never done such a service before. This is obviously a boon to busy clergy and parish workers.
There is an increasing demand for services of prayer and memorial after miscarriage and stillbirth, and such services are becoming a regular practice in some of the more creative Christian parishes. With this manual as a guide for anyone who wished to attempt this new style of service, I hope that this practice will continue to expand to the benefit of grieving families everywhere.See all Product description
