Dying Well

We are all going to die. But who feels prepared? John Wyatt helps us tackle life’s most difficult challenge head on. Looking at recent trends in dying he examines the ‘art of dying’, a Christian tradition from the past. We see opportunities for dying well and faithfully, real–world examples of personal growth and instances of reconciliation and personal healing in relationships. On the other hand, there are also challenges to face: the fears and temptations that dying can bring.

Blending theology, humanity and pastoral care, this is a book for those who are facing death and who are wanting peace and security. It is also for their relatives, friends and carers – for those who need to care for and comfort someone.

Faith in Later Life

‘Journeying Home’ is an excellent resource and you can download the PDF free from our website faithinlaterlife.org/fill-resource/journeying-home/This week is 'Dying Matters' week and yesterday almost 60 people from across the West Midlands Division gathered at Oldbury Corps over two sessions to reflect on 'Journeying Home' the missional, practical and pastorally focused resources on End of Life put together by the Older People's Ministries Team.

Worship, Teaching and practical opportunities to plan for our own end of life are all mixed with Music and great Cakes in a positive atmosphere.

One participant reflected "It is a practical but poignant programme but never morbid and a really beautiful time...I would totally recommend it to anyone"

If you would like to hold a 'Journeying Home' event at your Corps please contact your Regional Older People's Specialist
