Care for the Suffering
Our speakers will reflect on sacred texts that offer inspiration/guidance for comforting and caring for people who are suffering, how sacred texts and traditions help people make meaning in the midst of suffering, and how they influence the ways we approach dying and death in our respective religious communities.
