Go in Peace: Care for the Dying in Christian Community


This course is an introduction to the physical, emotional, practical and spiritual needs of the dying, and effective community and pastoral responses to those needs. Students will acquire a theological understanding of living well and dying well from a Christian perspective. They will become familiar with some of the ethical, legal, medical, and practical issues surrounding end-of-life care and explore spiritual support within a collaborative team approach. They will also explore how to mobilize a Christian community of care. They will learn how to respond in compassionate and creative ways to those who are dying, their caregivers, and those who grieve (including funeral and bereavement ministry).
