From the Editor

Hello Dear Readers!
This month we are taking on the painful subject of grief and loss.
Our Christian Faith is a source of enormous hope and healing in the face of death. Death, paradoxically, is both an evil and yet it is only by dying that we are born into the eternal light of God’s love.
Most adults struggle with this paradox and parents have the additional difficulty of trying to explain it to their children. We’ve called in an expert, Dr Gregory Popcak, to provide some guides to navigating those troubling times.
We have not received as many survey responses as we hoped, so we are leaving it open for a while longer and will analyse the results in a future issue.
