Introducing Conversations about End of Life Wishes in Your Congregation
A webinar with Rev. Rosemary Lloyd, UU Minister and Advisor to Faith Communities for The Conversation Project:
Tuesday, November 13, 7:45pm to 9:00pm Eastern Time.
90% of Americans think it is important talk with their loved ones and doctors about what matters most to them about end of life care. Yet fewer than 30% have done it. Some say it is scary. Or they just don’t know how to start the conversation.
In this webinar, Rosemary Lloyd will share examples of how congregations can introduce the tender topics of advance care planning and care at the end of life. Using preaching, pastoral care, programming, and free tools from The Conversation Project, faith communities can help normalize having these crucial and intimate conversations so that loved ones aren’t left in the dark about your wishes.
Rev. Rosemary Lloyd, BSN, MDiv, is Advisor to Faith Communities for The Conversation Project at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in Boston, Massachusetts. Rev. Lloyd supports clergy and congregations in having values-centered conversations with loved ones and health care providers about crucial end-of-life matters.
