One of the greatest needs after sudden loss is to be able to talk with others who understand. This is the only community program specializing in free services to help those who have lost a loved one suddenly through a traffic accident; medical emergency; suicide; military losses; or violent crime. Our clients seek help for themselves and their family in walking the journey of sudden loss. The event shatters their sense of order and thrusts a person into a world forever changed. Survivors may experience a greater sense of vulnerability and heightened anxiety. The safe world they once knew, no longer exists. The program offers hope and courage to cope with the journey ahead.

We provide weekly share groups that extend to other family members as well; interaction and support of Marshall’s Emergency and ICU departments sudden loss needs; and the “Remembrance Celebration” for the community during the difficult holiday celebrations in December. This successful program is now widely-known in the Sacramento and Davis areas as well as El Dorado County. Members of the group receive thoughtful and caring cards during difficult anniversaries and holidays in addition to weekly support.

Participants learn how to walk the journey of sudden loss as a direct result of attending coordinated share sessions; interaction through Marshall Hospital’s Emergency and ICU departments; and through continued support at the coordinated program at the “Remembrance Celebration.” They gain tremendous knowledge and strength through this support and learn to adjust to a “new” normal for their life.

In reading Diana Butler Bass’s  Strength for the Journey , I find that she, too, had a profound spiritual experience as a teenager. She writes of sensing “a powerful call to serious Christian discipleship” during an evening service at the Bible Church that high school friends had urged her to attend, although she had been confirmed in the Methodist Church of her parents. It was the beginning of a pilgrimage through — and sometimes an inner struggle  with — two expressions of faith: evangelicalism and mainline Protestantism, and finding the Episcopal church to be the spiritual home her heart had longed for.

Her personal faith pilgrimage is one with which many in EEWC can identify. And as the subtitle of her book makes clear, it is a pilgrimage of faith in  community . Thus, Bass is telling us two stories. As she describes it, it’s “the story of intertwined journeys — how one woman observed and experienced the shifts and struggles of mainline religion as she lived her own journey in eight Episcopal congregations over two decades. And it is the story of each congregation at a particular moment in its history” (p.18).

History is of great interest to Bass, who earned a Ph.D. in Religious Studies at Duke University. Her dissertation,  Standing Against the Whirlwind, Evangelical Episcopalians in 19th Century America  was published by Oxford University Press. That research background provided rich resource material for describing her association with Episcopal churches from the West Coast to the East Coast — and the insights she gained from each experience.
