Everyone has had to say goodbye. Experiences of loss abound: death, illness, unemployment, severed ties, financial struggles or geographical moves, to name but a few. Joyce Rupp has a healing gift for helping readers and listeners to reflect, ritualize and reorient themselves when loss looms large in their lives. In this book, she writes about healing and recovered hope. This audio edition includes six chapters, rooted in Scripture and concluding with questions for further refection. 1. The Ache of Autumn in Us 2. I Kw How the Flowers Felt 3. Hello Goodbye Hello 4. Like a Flock of Homesick Cranes 5. Praying Our Goodbyes 6. New Melodies Break Forth From the Heart
