Today in my church, University United Methodist Church in Austin, Texas we celebrated World Communion Sunday. Along those same lines, this coming Sunday, October 8, 2011, is World Hospice and Palliative Care Day.
Seldom a week goes by that I don’t hear accolades about the role of hospice in end-of-life times. For our family, hospice was and always will be a Godsend. Perhaps the same is true for you.
Let us remember and celebrate all the tremendous hospice care professionals across our world as we look to World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. In this organization’s web link, there is a tab to ‘tell your story’ which I hope you will consider given the power of stories to change peoples’ lives and give comfort to all by knowing we are not alone.
