What if our crisis could become a catalyst for flourishing without ignoring our deep human need for
lament and grief? What if we grant ourselves permission to name our grief and suffering, give it air to
breathe, find God’s presence in our pain, and entertain the possibility that hope can help us heal?
Join psychologists, therapists, theologians, authors, ministers, researchers, thought leaders, survivors, patient advocates, care givers, and practitioners to explore areas of grief, Christian spirituality, and what it means to be tethered to hope that remains. Together we will examine the universal nature of grief, how it impacts our lives in body, soul, spirit, relationships, and community, and the invitation to be formed by Christ in the midst of difficulty. Tethered will not explain away your grief or help you to “get over" it—quite the opposite. Tethered will help you open your heart to grief, listen to what it’s trying to teach you, and support you as you connect with the presence and promise of God while still in the midst of your journey to healing. God cares about you as a whole person.
This is about being undone and remade while staying tethered to hope.
