Join the Rev. Dr. Agnes Norfleet for a discussion of Pauline Boss’ recent book, The Myth of Closure: Ambiguous Loss in a Time of Pandemic and Change. Boss identifies these vague feelings of distress as caused by ambiguous loss, losses that remain unclear and hard to pin down, and thus have no closure. Collectively the world is grieving as the pandemic continues to change our everyday lives. This book provides many strategies for coping: encouraging us to increase our tolerance of ambiguity and acknowledging our resilience as we express a normal grief, and still look to the future with hope and possibility.
