Lisa Belcher Hamilton - See No Longer.jpgApril 18, 2001, Greencastle, Ind. - The Reverend Lisa Belcher Hamilton, an Episcopal priest and 1980 graduate of DePauw University, is the author of For Those We Love But See No Longer: Daily Offices for Times of Grief. Published by Paraclete Press, the book offers "scriptual readings, psalms, prayers and reflections from writers ranging from Julian of Norwich to C.S. Lewis to be used by those who are grieiving the loss of a loved one."

Publishers Weekly notes, "As fixed-hour prayer gains in popularity among Christians of all persuasions, it is only natural that they should want to adapt this ancient practice to particular life circumstances. Drawing on her own experience of losing her young husband to cancer, Lisa Belcher Hamilton accommodates the practice of fixed-hour prayer for those who mourn in For Those We Love but See No Longer: Daily Offices for Times of Grief. Fixed-hour prayer may be especially suited for times of grief, Hamilton explains, because it provides structure and comfort throughout the day. The book is small enough to be carried in one's pocket and offers lined pages for journaling."

An English literature major at DePauw, Hamilton went on to receive her M.Div. from Yale Divinity School in 1995. She is a parish priest at Christ Church in Greenwich, Connecticut. She was formerly associate producer in the religion unit of CBS News in New York. She is also former associate director of public relations for PBS' Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
