RESPITE 

support for bereaved parents  

RESPITE is a evening for married couples to spend time with other couples who understand the devastation of losing a child. We gather to learn from each other, encourage each other, and experience renewed hope for the future.
Respite is for couples with strong marriages, and for those whose marriages are struggling under the load of grief. It’s for those whose faith has grown through this loss, and for those who have hard questions. It’s for those who want to talk about their experience and their child, and for those who are tired of talking. It’s for couples whose loss is fresh, and for those who’ve been walking down this road for a while.

WHAT TO EXPECT?

 

We share our stories with each other and pray for each other. We will talk about:

  • grieving together though we may be grieving very differently

  • helping our other children through grief

  • dealing with fractured friendships and family relationships

  • finding meaning and purpose in our loss, and joy in spite of our loss

  • coming to terms with lingering questions about God’s role in our loss

The evening is not a conference or workshop. It’s not a group therapy session or a secular support group. It's a mixture of directed large-group conversation, enjoying a meal together, and opening up God's Word together in search of perspective and hope that can only be found in Christ.

WHO WILL BE THERE?

David And Nancy Guthrie have been hosting four to five retreat weekends per year since 2009 in Nashville. In that time, they've had couples come from all over the country, as well as from outside the U.S. This includes couples who lost a child only a month prior to attending, couples whose loss was fifteen years prior, and everywhere in between.

 

In June 2019, Colin and Suzanne Cooper attended the retreat in Nashville. Following the retreat David and Nancy agreed to come to Ireland to host the first Irish Respite Retreat weekend. Due to lack of numbers registering we were unable to run the weekend, we decided to run an evening with Nancy and David instead. We would still love to run a full respite retreat weekend in Ireland in the future. If you are interested in the weekend please let us know. For now we would love to see you on 18th May 2020.

Our goal is to help you take steps toward healing from wherever you are. We usually have a wide range of ages represented in the children who have died, from infants born still to young adults in their twenties or thirties, as well as a wide range of causes of death.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

There will be no charge for the evening with David and Nancy Guthrie on 18th May 2020.
