Early Infant Loss

In this week’s episode of the Connected Kingdom podcast, David and I discuss a difficult subject. Early infant loss is a term that applies to miscarriage, stillbirth, and the death of a newborn. We asked Glenda Mathes to join us to help us understand this issue from a practical and biblical perspective. Glenda is the author of Little One Lost: Living With Early Infant Loss and we ask her about how we can minister to (and how we should not attempt to minister to) those who have suffered this kind of loss, about the guilt that is so often a part of the grieving process, about how the church has too often failed such people, and about so much more. From a pastoral perspective, and simply from the perspective of one who has known many who have suffered such a loss, I found her wise counsel very helpful. I trust you will find the same as you listen in.
