Rev Richard Coles
The Madness of Grief
Friday 11th June 2021, 6-7pm
Baillie Gifford Tent
The much loved vicar, broadcaster and musician shares his personal story of losing his life partner and soul mate and how he found the strength to move forward.
Whether it’s pastoral care for the bereaved, discussions about the afterlife with parishioners or being called out to perform the last rites, death is part of the Rev Richard Coles’ routine. But when his beloved partner died unexpectedly, much about death took Richard by surprise. The man who so often assists others during such difficult times now found himself in need of help, and began to look to others for guidance to steer him through his journey of loss.
In time, things do get better, and the Reverend’s deeply personal account of living through grief – and the lessons he has learnt along the way – will resonate, unforgettably, with anyone who has lost a loved one.
