Lutheran Cancer & Hospcie Society Welcomes New Partners - Biblical Charity Institute

Lutheran Cancer & Hospice Society recently began publishing booklets for Christians who are facing a terminal illness. This was made possible by a grant from our new partners, Biblical Charity Intstitute (BCI). BCI funds and partners with Biblical Charities Continuing Education (BCCE) a continuing education program at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.

Lutheran Cancer & Hospice Society will publish six booklets thanks to BCCE's grant. (Three are currently available here.) It is our goal to fill a gap in Lutheran pastoral resources when it comes to terminal illness and hospice. Pastors, deaconesses, teachers, and other members of the church do a great job of caring for those who suffer from diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's, AIDS, and others. We hope that this series of booklets will be a tool for all involved in the care of the terminally ill - the spiritual caregiver, the family, and the patient.
