March 11, 2014 – Faith & Society: End of Life and Hospice
Season 4, Episode 10 (Series, 4 of 6: Life-Beginnings and Endings)
For many it’s a subject almost too difficult to talk about… on this program of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we discuss faith and the end-of-life.
Sometimes people say it all too glibly – “there are two things no one can avoid, death and taxes.” But the truth is, regardless of being unable to avoid it, most of the time we don’t even want to talk about it. Still, we know that death is an inevitable part of life.
How does our faith help us not only talk about – but also deal with – the reality of death as a part of life? When does life actually end, according to our faith traditions? And what about choosing hospice? We’ll have a special guest, a hospice nurse, to give us her insights and guidance.
