Video and Discussion – Grief Beyond Belief

Alex Havasy, facilitator

11 a.m., September 5, 2021

This Sunday we will view and discuss a video entitled “Grief Beyond Belief”.

In this video from the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s “Ask an Atheist” series, Peggi Johnson and Rebecca Hensler will discuss grieving without god. Peggi works with The Compassionate Friends, an organization that supports families who’ve lost a child, and Rebecca Hensler is the founder of Grief Beyond Belief, a popular Facebook page devoted to faith-free grief support. The video talks about how we deal with grief and also how we respond to religious friends who try to comfort us with faith based fantasies.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is an American non-profit organization, which advocates for atheists, agnostics, and non-theists. Learn more about them at

The video lasts just over 53 minutes, and you can view it here:
