Looking Ahead: How Your Dying Impacts Those Around You


It’s invitation. It’s community. It’s unfolding.

If there is a book that can help you live life with purpose right up until your last breath, this is it.

This practical and hopeful book is a distillation of 30 years of work and study in the area of death, dying and bereavement. Author Rick Bergh shares his professional and personal experience as one who has lived through the loss of his first wife along with his four children, and his work with hundreds of people in their last chapter of life.

Looking Ahead will:

• Show you how to invite others into your important remaining days on earth
• Help you identify your new purpose and meaning in unexpected ways
• Give you tools to engage loved ones in meaningful conversation
• Provide a framework that enables family to be key contributors in your unfolding story

Far beyond a book that prepares you and your family for your death, Looking Ahead offers its readers 17 tried-and-true principles to live fully in the present. It will inspire you to author your own story and engage your family and friends in your journey looking forward.

Introducing Project Life Canada

Anglicans for Life Canada offers this eight week course to give a comprehensive snapshot of life issues and how Christians can make a difference for life.

A Biblical, Christian worldview of life issues will be explored during the course.

Scripture is our ultimate teacher and source of authority for all we present in the Project Life series. We have added research data and testimony to reinforce the fact that Biblical truths remain foundational and relevant in our culture today.

To assist clergy and laity in pastoral care, the following topics are covered: abortion, post-abortion, adoption, abstinence, euthanasia and assisted suicide, stem cell research. Participating in this course will help equip congregations and individuals to  better understand and respond in Christian love to the needs of others.

To learn more or to order Project Life for your small group or church, please contact Anglicans for Life National Director Vicky Hedelius at Canada@AnglicansforLife.org or 905-220-0292.
