Attending The Dying: A Handbook Of Practical Guidelines
A concise hands-on guide to attending to the needs of the dying. Megory Anderson was called to a vigil at the bedside of a friend who was dying one night. That experience was so powerful that she began working with others who need help attending to those who are dying. Today Anderson is the executive director of the Sacred Dying Foundation in San Francisco, and trains others in the art of "vigiling," a way of attending to the needs of the dying. This practical and concise handbook provides a brief overview of what to expect and how to respond to the needs of someone who is dying. It can be used by and for people of any faith tradition, as well as of no particular faith. Chaplains, social workers, hospital-care workers, and friends or family of the dying will find this a helpful companion for preparing themselves to be present to one of life's most sacred transitions.83% (13)

10/8/11 I am grateful that God sustained me on Monday as I led the evening with the youth group. I was extremely tired, yet God gave me what I needed. (Thanks to those of you who prayed). I am grateful that the youth seemed to be engaging with the scripture in learning about the character of God. I am grateful for partnership with one of my teammates and for his help in setting up the night. I am grateful for a surprise visit from one of the girls I mentor, even though I hadn't seen her in a long while! I am grateful for the chance to reflect on the summer and on the past 6 or 7 months of doing ministry with the youth. I realized that God has shifted some paradigms for me in terms of what it means to labor faithfully and fruitfully for the Kingdom. I am grateful for being able to meet one of our new neighbors and for the chance to invite two of the girls in our building to come help me bake a cake. I am grateful for a restful saturday morning. God woke me up early so I biked to a park by downtown and then to chinatown for breakfast. I am also grateful for a restful sunday morning. Again God woke me early and I was able to get some errands done as well as read and reflect. I am grateful that our neighbor downstairs trusts us enough to invite us to her baby shower (where EVERYONE else was of the same race, and either from her family or church). I am grateful that God has allowed us to build this relationship with them. I am grateful that God has grown me in the ability to relate cross-culturally such that I didn't really feel awkward even though we didn't really know anyone. I am very grateful that God has sustained my relationship with one of the girls I mentor even though she has gone on to college and is really busy. I am grateful for the chance to attend her birthday party, to meet more of her friends and family, and to just have fun with her and see the ways she is growing. I am grateful for the chance to worship with the youth at church on Sunday. for one song in particular they actually got into it and danced around. it was SO FUN! :) I love their joy! I am grateful for the chance to meet up with two leaders from the ministry I led while I was in college. God is doing some mighty things at UCLA! And I am grateful for the chance to hear their stories, to encourage them, to give them the wisdom that God has given me. God is good.
Mohrmann spent 30 years as a pediatrician treating sick and dying children, and this collection of stories about her most memorable cases is yet another important contribution to the narrative bioethics genre. These are stories that are both painful and hopeful, tragic and funny, full of remarkable characters and sometimes bizarre families. In some ways the book closely resembles Zaner's Conversations on the Edge, in that it allows the reader to peek behind the hospital room curtain to see how patients and their families deal with agonizing choices about life and death. And in both books the reader can see the author evolve and grow over the course of a career. But in the case of Mohrmann's work the author is not simply listening to and advising patients and loved ones, but actually treating them--and, in some cases, making the hard call to recognize the end and withdraw life support Further, Mohrmann's ultimate intention is to tell, through these cases, how doctors learn to be doctors--that is, how physicians learn to attend to patients. Listening, accompanying, and waiting--these are the primary learnings in the education of a doctor. So while this is a book in bioethics, and Mohrmann is an established figure in the SCE crowd, it will also appeal to physicians and other health care workers.
