October 15, 2020, is National Miscarriage Awareness Day. Bethany Lutheran Church, 9101 Lamar Avenue, will hold services titled “Real Grief & Real Comfort” during their regular worship hours of 5:00 pm Saturday, October 10; and 8:30 am and 10:45 am Sunday, October 11. Professor Erik Hermann of Concordia Seminary in St. Louis will deliver the sermon. His personal experience with a loss of child puts him in a unique place to offer words of comfort. A panel of parents who have experienced this kind of grief will make brief presentations in worship and facilitate discussion between services on Sunday about how we can be better at “mourning with those who mourn” in this way. Resources will be provided for those who would like to be better informed.
