In this final episode of our series on finding honesty and hope in situations of death and dying, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve spend time looking at two extremes: situations where medical choices may hasten death in the name of relieving suffering, and situations where life ends in infancy or during a pregnancy.  These situations are especially difficult but for almost opposite reasons. In situations of palliative care, we can be uncomfortable at the idea of having too much control over ending a person's life--especially if treatment meant to ease pain also carries a collateral cost of hastening death.  And in situations of infant mortality, stillbirth, and miscarriage, the trauma is from having no control at all and feeling so powerless.  How do we think about these circumstances as people of faith? If listening in on a conversation on these subjects would be helpful for you, we invite you to join us for this episode of Crazy Faith Talk.
