Living Fully, Preparing for Death; a symposium for faith leaders

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?


Who should attend:  Faith leaders, e.g., rabbis, imans, pastors, faith community nurses or health promoters, congregational educators, or pastoral care ministers. 

Panel Facilitator:  David Fife, Casa de la Luz Hospice

Panelist: Ajahn Sarayut Arnanta, Wat Buddhametta Tucson; Rev. Owen Chandler. Saguaro Christian Church; Lynn Hourani,  Islamic Center Tucson; and Gila Silverman, jewish anthropologist

Panel discussion with leaders from diverse cultural and faith perspectives sharing experiences with conversation on death & dying
2:30-3:30:       Information session on how to complete Advance Directives 
3:30-4:00:       End-of-Life care through the lens of Hospice "Stories from the Field"
