If death is such a certainty, why do so many of us avoid talking about it? Articulating our wishes about the end of our lives is one way of ensuring that we take our leave of this world with hope in our hearts. This booklet encourages us to think and talk about our own inevitable death. Speaking openly about our end-of-life wishes can not only equip our loved ones to carry them out – it could be our last gift to those whom we love. Written by the Revd Susan Walker, a URC Area Minister in Staffordshire who has previously worked as a hospice chaplain.
