Are you looking for a new way to renew your worship, respond to the needs of the church and community, and connect with people in their passage of life--both chronological and crisis? This book offers a rich resource to you, both as a tool for worship and also devotionally as you face the deepest questions of life. Here you will find one way that the church can renew and rediscover its healing ministry. Abigail Evans, a leading specialist in bioethics and health ministries, explores how God's gift of healing is available during all seasons of a person's life and how the power of hope and healing are affirmed and redirected through liturgical services, sacraments, and rites. This distinctive resource features specific healing liturgies for injury, illness, death, separation, retirement, and a host of other major life events, from a wide variety of religious traditions.

She has spent over fifty years in ministry as a missionary in Brazil, Presbyterian church pastor in six states, synod executive, Columbia University chaplain, seminary and medical school professor in the United States and abroad, and consultant on health care and bioethics to agencies including the National Institutes of Health, the White House, and the World Council of Churches. She is the author of numerous books, including Is God Still at the Bedside: The Medical, Ethical, and Pastoral Issues of Death and Dying and Healing Liturgies for the Seasons of Life, published by Westminster John Knox Press.
