The Conversation Project has learned from faith communities across the country that congregations are natural environments for talking about the tender and vital topics related to illness and wishes for care at the end of life. People gathering in familiar places with people they know and trust seem open and willing to talk about mortal matters. With guidance from their clergy leaders, congregants are better prepared to embrace the reality of their mortality and not postpone having these important conversations. With education, appropriate tools, encouragement and support, congregants are strengthened to share their wishes and give their loved ones the gift of knowing what matters most to them when it comes to end-of-life care so no one is left in the dark.
