Upcoming: "An Orthodox Pastoral Approach to Miscarriage"

I have been very blessed to read a paper sent to me by Fr. Peter Jon Gillquist entitled, "An Orthodox Pastoral Approach to Miscarriage". I believe it is yet unpublished and I will probably be seeking permission to post it here on Lost Innocents. It is a very good work and I want it to be read widely. I have written a review and will be posting that here as soon as I have permission from Fr. Peter. As Orthodox we stand up for the rights of the unborn but we do not have a universal, compassionate policy regarding the treatment of babies who die before birth. This needs to change. I hope that in publicizing the work by Fr. Peter I can help effect that change.
