The last time I councilled someone was yesturday, so it is fresh on my mind.
A good friend of mine lost her mother, and I haven't seen her in 10 years. I first dropped her a card at her Mother's house where she was staying to let her know I cared and was there for her. At the service I took her
aside for about 10 minutes to pray with her although she is not a christian I believed it was a help to her. After that I made an appointment to meet with her at a later date.
I feel by getting with her in a few days all the activity at the service would not interfer with our conversation so much.
