Our Stories: My name is Matt and it’s a privilege to share my story of grief at Foothills this weekend. Pretty much all of us have a grief history – a Book of Grief, if you will - because we all, in a variety of ways, have experienced the pain and power of grief in our lives. Often we think of grief as the loss of a beloved family member or friend, but grief comes in many forms. A separation or divorce, a loss of mobility due to injury, retirement, release from employment, infertility, change in finances, leaving home, empty nesting, a move or transfer to another city. In truth, any change can bring grief. This weekend I invite you to listen as I open up five chapters from my book of grief to encourage you on your journey with Christ. Matt Boda ?Matt serves as Lead Pastor at RockPointe Church in Calgary. He and Jamie have five daughters, four son-in-laws, three granddaughters and three grandsons. Matt has served in pastoral and denominational leadership roles in Canada and the US, including here at Foothills from 1991-96. He loves hanging with family and friends, giving talks about the most important stuff in life and seeing leaders increase their influence. His life’s mission is to honour and influence others in company with those he loves.
