In this series of two audio presentations, Joyce Rupp points out to those in the caring ministries and to those who regularly walk with the hurting that the most important thing is to spend time in solitude “communing with the God who dwells at the very core of our being.” She also addresses how we deal with change, loss, transition, and emotions involved in the grieving process. Rupp’s central theme is that by growing through our suffering, we are able to be compassionate with others who are hurting.
