DEATH & DYING–some resources for you

In our ministries and in our lives we face the reality of death and dying. These seasons are a special space for God to do work in people’s lives. At our November 12, 2019 Grace Leaders Network Gathering, Dr. Don Shoemaker gave a short presentation on the topic with a Q & A conversation which followed.
