One of the ways we learn about people (or a group) is by the way they handle their grief. What they say and do shows their beliefs and values. Being a reflective and creative person, it's not surprising that on the occasion of the death of royalty, he would put pen to paper (parchment?) and work out some of his deep emotion. This passage is included in the Bible for us to 'watch' and 'learn'. Join us as we learn something of the discipline of 'good grief'.
