According to worldmeters.info, to date, the United States has experienced more Covid-19 infections and deaths than any other country in the world. With a population of approximately 334 million, there have been over 49 million cases with over 800,000 deaths. These figures do not reflect the people we lost through disease, cancer, accidents, etc. It is estimated that for every death, nine people are grieving. That means millions of us are dealing with death and grief. I believe Jesus would want us to talk about our individual and collective grief in compassionate and honest ways. 

My guest, Lisa Harrison, Administrative Director, Community Grief Support of Birmingham, Alabama, and I discuss the following: 

  • There is no one way to grieve, no standard amount of time, no step-by-step process we all go through;
  • The importance of giving ourselves and other people permission to grieve in our own way and in our own time;
  • The challenges and social stigma of mental illness and how important empathy is to support others as we want to be supported; and
  • How joining a group of people who are also working through grief over the death of a loved one is helpful to establish a sense of community and encouragement.

    Bob Saget's Here For You

    BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
