What do you do when your friend’s son commit’s suicide? How do you come alongside someone just found out they have cancer? What do you do or say in the shadow of tragedy?
Sarah Beckman drew on her experiences as both the eager friend and the sufferer to write her book Alongside. Ironically, one of the biggest take aways is understanding that it is not about you. You can help but you can also cause more harm than good. Her book is not just a testament but a guide with real time practical standards to use as barometers for stepping into the world of other’s suffering. This book gives all who read it a fighting chance to truly come alongside and help, not hinder, those lost in a sea of misery and chaos. Join us as we dive deeper and further into what it means to come Alongside those in need.

A special thanks to the musical talent of our friend and guest of the show David HaLevy for writing and performing the sound to our intro and outgoing music. Check out the Ruach Guitar Facebook Page he makes by hand and plays as well as on Instagram. We are very humbled and grateful for this personal touch to the show and cherish it greatly. תודה David!
