Grief and Gratitude at the End of Life
Who: Kin Ministry members only.
This session will deal both with journeying with another person as they approach death as well as helping the KIN Minister and other caregivers process that experience. It will use relevant quotes and stories to provide a context for a discussion about a variety of strategies and resources for navigating the dying process. As the title suggests, both grief and gratitude will be positioned as key themes for understanding the dying experience and for discovering both help and hope at the end of life.
