What an an enjoyable and poignant book. The author, a hospice chaplain, related stories she'd heard from patients and what she learned from them. A few times, the author's own religious beliefs (which are irrelevant in her communication with patients) were challenged through the experiences she had with patients.
The book magnified the fundamental importance of listening (and, sometimes, asking questions to help others find their own meaning). It was a beautiful and powerful reminder that being present is not about sharing one's own view.
This book made me miss my days as a volunteer hospice chaplain. There is such beauty to be found at the end of life.
