Widows need community. They need to be able to talk, hug, cry, comfort, encourage and inspire one another. Being with other Christian widows can actually help them feel “normal” again. Our team will never forget what a huge relief it was for us when we stepped into a room full of other widows for the first time. Immediately, we felt the tension we had been walking around with for months being released as we realized we didn’t have to worry about:
what someone might ask
having to explain I was a widow and when/how I lost my husband
being embarrassed if I suddenly teared up
Listening to a story about someone’s perfect life
We take it for granted that widows know other widows. At our first conference one of our participants shared she had been a widow for five years and it was the first time she had met another widow. Others have told us that even at very large churches (over 2,000 people) there are usually only a couple of widows. Imagine what that means for most widows. Yes, there are other conferences out there for widows, but unlike others, our conferences are focused on helping widows to encourage one another in sharing their stories of God’s faithfulness.
