Confronting our Death Denying Culture
Show Notes

Dying is a part of living.  We will all experience it ourselves and we will all lose someone we love and experience the grief and bereavement that comes with that loss.  Even though it is such a fundamental part of life – it seems to be a topic that many people have a hard time talking about.   Because it is such a difficult topic – we tend to avoid mentioning it at all.  That has created what many call a “death denying” culture.   Find out how you can confront our death denying culture in this week's podcast.
