Pathways to Discipleship
We need to talk about death and about MAKING FAITHFUL DECISION AT THE END OF LIFE.
The Bible said two seemingly contradictory things about death: death is the enemy to be resisted; death must be accepted as part of what it means to be mortal. This series will provide both a language of faith to speak about death and dying and a practical guide to navigating end-of-life decisions with family or friends.
