This program is presented in partnership with Hospice of the Wood River Valley, St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation, and St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
Author and former palliative care hospital chaplain Joan Maxwell draws on her recent memoir Soul Support: Spiritual Encounters at Life’s End to offer helpful, practical information for those facing or anticipating the life-threatening illness of a loved one. She shares lessons learned from terminally ill patients of all faiths and no faith to whom she provided spiritual support during 12 years as a hospital chaplain.
Joan Maxwell was trained and served as a chaplain in three acute-care hospitals in the Washington, DC area. The co-author of two previously published books, she received a Master of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary and was endorsed as a hospital chaplain by The Episcopal Church. She lives in Washington, DC with her husband David.
Copies of Soul Support will be available from Chapter One Bookstore.
