Assisted Dying - A Discussion
DATE: September 18, 2016
COST: Free (by invitation -- see below)
As part of the Crucial Conversations series at the E P Wahl Centre, Taylor is hosting a discussion about the issues facing the church related to “assisted dying.” This is a way to begin assisting Christians in thinking theologically about the issues facing the church related to the new legal/medical reality in Canada.
Given the breadth and complexity of this issue, this is not a public event. Rather, we are inviting front line professionals (i.e., doctors, nurses, and chaplains) to help us get a better understanding of the issues you face in your ministry/practice related to medical assisted dying, the issues you see facing the church as our society continues to move in this direction, and how Taylor might assist you in the work to which God has called you.
We anticipate an evening of moderated discussion between colleagues and peers, with the participation of invited experts; this event will be hosted by Taylor Seminary President Dr. David Williams. If you serve in medical, personal care, chaplaincy or legal fields and your work involves end-of-life care, we invite you to request an invitation to this event using the form below. Seating is limited, and priority will be given to those most actively involved in this field at this time.
