Event description

Description

It is not uncommon to wonder how we ourselves can cope with death, but where do we even begin to help others through the process?

This module will explore a Biblical response towards death and life beyond death. As we examine what it means to grieve and lament we will learn how to help others in their time of sorrow and loss. Special attention will be paid to the Psalms as a resource for encouragement for those dealing with death.

Learning outcomes:

  • Deeper understanding of key biblical passages that address death, grief, and loss

  • Theological resources to respond to common cultural misperceptions and myths surrounding the death experience

  • Discover how Christians have practiced spiritual care for the dying and grieving

  • How to conduct a caring visit with those facing grief, including the appropriate use of prayers and Scripture

Facilitator: Rev. Dr. Kevin Livingston B.A.,M.Div., Ph.D.

Kevin is Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministry at Tyndale Seminary and has served as the minister in several Presbyterian congregations in Seattle, Vancouver, Cambridge and Toronto.
