Bring comfort to the sick, the dying and their loved ones - that is what you try to do every day, and that is what this lovely booklet will help you do even better. No matter what your patient's spiritual path, they will find words of comfort in this collection of over 200 short quotations, prayers and poems from around the world and across ten different faiths.
Similar in format to our Book of Comfort and Healing, this compilation focuses on the next step in life's journey. Quoting famous writers and philosophers like C.S. Lewis and Cicero, it also includes sacred scripture from Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism and the Bahá'í Faith, with a few quotations from Zoroastrianism and Taoism. Every quotation, prayer and poem is carefully chosen to be both universal in its appeal and comforting in its message.
The 4.75x7" size is easy to carry, and can slip into a standard A7 envelope. It is 64 pages with large type for older eyes, and dark teal type for easy reading and a gift-book feel.
These can be used in nursing homes, hospital chapels and waiting rooms, hospice centers, and even funeral homes. They are a great resource for planning memorial services as well.
We know that budgets are tight, so we've priced these so that you can afford to give them out freely.
