Module 4: Spiritual and Biblical Resources to Cope with Death and Loss

Death, Dying and Grief Certificate alternates with Spiritual Formation Certificate. The Spiritual Formation Certificate will start up again in Fall 2019.

This module will explore a Biblical response towards death and life beyond death. As we examine what it means to grieve and lament we will learn how to help others in their time of sorrow and loss. Special attention will be paid to the Psalms as a resource for encouragement for those dealing with death.

Learning outcomes:

  • Deeper understanding of key biblical passages that address death, grief, and loss
  • Theological resources to respond to common cultural misperceptions and myths surrounding the death experience
  • Discover how Christians have practiced spiritual care for the dying and grieving
  • How to conduct a caring visit with those facing grief, including the appropriate use of prayers and Scripture
