Coping with Grief

Letter to the Editors

Thank you for “Mourning for the Earth” (August 2013), in which Katharine Preston asks, “Could our breaking hearts be part of the reason we are immobilized [about climate change]?” then offers the process of grieving as a pathway forward. As a psychotherapist wrestling with the ethical implications of the converging crises of climate change, four years ago I convened a group of psychotherapists. We meet monthly to study, support each other, and take action together regarding climate change. We all need support in the work of grieving and then taking action on behalf of the Earth community, God’s beloved community.
