Item description for Healing Takes Time by David P. Gallagher...

Overview
Loss can occur in many forms, such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or termination of a job. Healing Takes Time is filled with 52 meditations and reflections to help people experiencing loss start a journey of healing. This biblical resource draws on experiences from Gallagher's life, and includes a theme, relevant Scripture passages, personal illustrations, and practical steps to take toward healing in each meditation. Just as a physical injury takes time to mend, emotional and spiritual anguish require time, patience, and faith to heal. Perspective is often lost during painful times, and the Scripture passages in this book are a fresh reminder of God's love and faithfulness. Most people have heard about the stages of grief, but knowing the stages academically is quite different from knowing them in the heart. Healing Takes Time helps those suffering loss, loneliness, and sorrow prayerfully walk through the stages of grief step-by-step. Healing Takes Time is ideal for support groups or people working at their own pace. This short, practical, and focused book is a helpful companion for anyone experiencing emotional or spiritual distress.

In his book, Healing Takes Time, Dr. David Gallagher gently takes the reader's hand and together they walk the tough journey towards spiritual wellness through scripture promises and quiet reflections. His support and guidance smooth the rough spots as his gentle voice quiets the restless and provides hope for those who need understanding. Above all, his faith in God's love and compassion for each of us brightly lights the way.
 
Map for a Healing Journey  Nov 23, 2005
In his dedication, Gallagher mentions individuals who have lost babies, children, and spouses as well as those who will face any serious loss in the future. Throughout the book's 52 chapters he makes clear that the cause of grief is less an issue here than the journey to healing. Each two-page topic begins with an affirmation and reflection, often based on Gallagher's own experience. For example, the fourth chapter opens with "Today with God's help: I will remember that burden bearing means sharing." The reflection takes us to a hospital room where the author's father is dying. Gallagher is there, accompanied by a friend whose comfort comes in the form of total silence. Sometimes, Gallagher writes, burden bearing is about sharing things other than words."

The remainder of each chapter consists of a scripture passage and questions for meditation, suggested action, a brief prayer, and space for writing a brief journal entry. The author encourages readers to use the book in any way that works, be it weekly, monthly or otherwise; individually, with a friend, or with a group.
