A book for people grieving because of the pandemic, health challenges, family conflict, or other losses, while also seeing so many things to be thankful for. A book for small groups – each of the seven chapters has discussion questions at the end. “Two Hands: Grief and Gratitude in the Christian Life is one of the most important books I have read in the last few months. I have long been an advocate for gratitude as a way of life, but Lynne Baab helped me understand that grief is just as important and often the missing element in our practices. We all need a better understanding of how grief and gratitude intertwine in a healthy life. This is a must read book for everyone as we emerge from the challenges of the COVID pandemic.” —Christine Sine, curator of the Godspace blog and author of The Gift of Wonder: Creative Practices for Delighting In God “Grief and gratitude are not a dichotomy. With generous doses of pastoral wisdom and emotional intelligence, Lynne Baab invites us to identify the breadth and intensity of our grief and gratitude. Drawing on Psalms, Paul, Jesus and his disciples, alongside deeply personal examples, Baab navigates a way for the soul to move beyond cynicism, inadequacy, materialism and denial. Two Hands is a delightful book in pandemic times to read prayerfully and contemplatively and in conversation with trusted friends.” —Rev. Dr. Darren Cronshaw, Professor of Missional Leadership at Sydney College of Divinity and Pastor of Auburn Baptist Church“Lynne Baab’s biblically rooted reflections on grief and gratitude encourage us toward wholeness. With insight, honesty and compassion for the struggle, she urges us to embrace both the brokenness and ampleness of God’s world.” —Caroline J.
