I spoke to someone last week who was upset because they weren’t able to attend the funeral of a friend. Normally, in our villages, funerals are great gatherings of friends and neighbours, with a proper celebration and food and drink shared. Now, funerals have become much more private, with only a handful of close family permitted to attend.
If you are at home and unable to go to a funeral, here is a short prayer card which you can pray through at home at the same time as the funeral.
There is also a new resource with reflections to support mental health.
Each day includes a short piece to read and some suggestions for putting it into practice. It ties together mental health and prayer and shows how prayer practices can contribute to supporting your mental health.
