Reverend Blue Jeans
After serving as a Lay Minister on the staff of a large Midwestern congregation, Reverend Blue Jeans continued on a path of service to grieving people that began over 18 years ago. RBJ has a unique ability to communicate very delicate issues in a most common sense and compassionate way.
Reverend Blue Jeans is here "to help you find your way" following the loss of a loved one. His work is non-denominational and seeks to assist the hurting in finding "their" way to healing. Through seminars, retreats, tapes and CD, and through writing, RBJ provides the hurting with choices and avenues for healing. One size does not fit all, and each program is specifically designed and tailored to meet the needs of hurting people.
RBJ has spoken from the pulpit of many churches, designed and presented a 16-week course in grief and loss and facilitates an annual retreat each fall at the beautiful St. Benedict Retreat Center in Eastern Nebraska. He has also presented to many Compassionate Friends groups, led training for Hospice caregivers and nursing home staffs, high school assemblies and conducts funeral services for families with no religious affiliation. He has produced a CD entitled “You are Not Alone: Healing from Loss”. 750 copies were sent to the survivors of 9-11 in both New York and Washington D.C.
It is the goal of RBJ to help you find your way back to some kind of normal life, following the loss of love.
