Interfaith Community Services and Southwest Folklife Alliance on behalf of the
Arizona End of LIfe Care Partnership present:
Living Fully, Preparing for Death a symposium for faith leaders
Faith community leaders accompany people in life events, from birth to death. During important rites of passage, playing the role of a faith-based leader is a privilege and an honor. Are you equipped to provide the support for those you serve, considering how they want to live until they die? What questions are faith-based leaders asking that we all can benefit from? What perspectives from faiths different from your own offer insight into dying and death?
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Who should attend: Faith leaders, e.g., rabbis, imans, pastors, faith community nurses or health promoters, congregational educators, or pastoral care ministers.
