Christians, Death, and Grieving with Sonja Lund

What is death and what do Christians mean when they talk about death? How does this tie into other theological tenets? How does this affect the grieving process? Is it okay to talk to someone who’s dead? If death has been conquered, why does it hurt so much?

In this episode, I chat with Sonja Lund, seminary student and Death Companioning Initiate, about her thoughts on death and grieving, as it pertains to many Christians.

I found this to be a really encouraging and thought-provoking conversation, one that Sonja approaches with gentleness and sensitivity, but if you have recently had a close encounter with death and the grief that comes with it, please take care in listening.
