Liz Tichenor: Being Church on Our Worst Days
Author and priest Liz Tichenor lost her mom and her baby in the same year. Brand new to leading a church and reeling from the grief, the pain was enough to break her. But it didn’t—because other people carried her through. In this conversation, Kate and Liz discuss: How in the thick of tragedy we need the church and shared rituals of grief How to be faithful and authentic when going through the “unimaginable” The courage it takes to show up for another in the midst of their worst days (and why we are called to do so… no matter how uncomfortable) Why Lent is the season for the brokenhearted This episode will restore your hope for communities of faith that can show up for our most tender moments.
