Minister's Study

Being a shoulder

I spent a good chunk of today down at the hospital. One of our church members has terminal cancer. He was taken into the emergency room today in a non-responsive seizure. A CT scan revealed the cancer has spread to the brain. Though he recovered consciousness and can now talk adequately now, they have decided to put him into hospice. Fortunately, he's saved (he not too long ago credited the cancer with bringing him to the Lord a few years ago), and confident of his salvation. But that doesn't make this easy on his wife and teenage daughter.
