Christian understandings about death and resurrection impact how we live and can also impact how we die.  Michelle O’Rourke in her book Befriending Death: Henri Nouwen and a Spirituality of Dying, uses Henri Nouwen’s own words that focus on living with the full awareness of being a beloved child of God and applies them to dealing with our own death– before we “need to”.  Watch a video with clips of Michelle O’Rourke describing the themes of her book.
