In a culture that both “doesn’t do death” (eg. no service, visitation), yet claims the right to choose death (Medical Assistance in Dying) how do Ministry Personnel help people of faith navigate the complexity of choices as we confront End of Life issues? How can we enable helpful conversations?

This was the first of two events designed to help Ministry Personnel support individuals and families as they plan for End-of-Life decisions.

On February 22, 2018, Rev. Kathy Dahmer lead participants in an examination of the following questions:

  • How our faith inform our views of life and death
  • How changes in our culture impact those views.
  • The spiritual and psychological impact of a culture that “doesn’t do death”, and how we challenge that trend.
  • How Ministry Personnel can effectively and faithfully walk with people through the many changes and choices End of Life issues present.
