  • Author Mark Belletini

    Mark Belletini is completing his 37th and final year in parish ministry. He has served at First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus, Ohio, for the past 17 years and previously served two congregations in California.

In twenty-two simple yet profound reflections, seasoned minister Mark Belletini explores the many and varied forms of grief. His honest, poetic essays serve as a prism, revealing the distinct colors and manifestations of grief in our lives. He addresses the way we respond to the loss of people in our lives, loss of love, loss of focus, and loss of the familiar–understanding that grief is as much a part of our lives as our breathing. Belletini uses specific and personal stories to open up to the universal experience.

Nothing Gold Can Stay is a gift of awareness, showing how the shades of grief serve our deepest needs.
