Holding Hope: Grieving Pregnancy Loss During Advent is a four-week Advent devotion for all those suffering from pregnancy loss. It is intended to be used by anyone who is grieving the loss of a child or children due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or other complications of premature births.
Holding Hope is intended to provide a safe opportunity for us to share our experiences of pregnancy loss. Each Sunday of Advent has scripture passages from the Old and New Testament, as well as an accompanying devotion. It is our prayer that this devotion will offer you comfort and hope in the midst of a terrible time of pain. We believe that the Church should be a place where you can find support and comfort, and pray that the guidance within these pages reaches out to you, wherever you are, and opens up the possibility of hope for a future in Christ.
