(Lifesite) Anglican curriculum tackles end-of-life issues

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Anglicans for Life is pleased to announce the publication of their new 8-week Adult Education Curriculum Embrace the Journey. This one-of-a-kind educational series is designed to help churches educate and equip parishioners to care for elderly family and church members.

According to Georgette Forney, author of Embrace the Journey and President of Anglicans for Life, “The church and our culture are aging. There are more than 40 million people in the United States age 65 and over, and 5.5 million of them are 85 or older. We as the church need to be prepared to minister to these people and help family members care for them.”

Read it all.

This looks to be an excellent program that churches can use as an outreach ministry to their community.  It seems few folks passing the 55 and 60 year old thresholds are prepared for life events that come next.  This should make people sit up and think.
