  • Here are the Christian texts: Bereavement-Christian.pdf The Jewish texts will be a selection from the shiva prayers.
  • It would be helpful if before the meeting you could read and reflect on at least the text from your own faith.
  • Most of the time in our meeting will be spent in small groups, in which each faith is represented, and where members of each faith will share what their texts mean for them. This may lead to wider discussion, but the aim should be focus on the texts in hand.
  • The exercise is not a competition, but an attempt to gain mutual understanding. Please come with an openness to learn. Remember that God created us each with two ears but only one mouth.
  • Please treat the texts of other faiths with as much respect as your own (or more). Please do not, for example, place any texts on the floor. Any unwanted papers will be taken away at the end of the evening for reverent disposal.
