I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8:38-39

Important conversations concerning death sometimes never happen. We can be too frightened or too busy to press into talking about what might be our own or our loved ones dying needs when the end of life comes. We need to make space to do this holy work. To this end, we are creating a place to begin the conversation. Through teaching, reflection and dialogue, we will walk with grace and compassion in naming our personal intentions as they are for us today.
