Despite its ubiquity, death is rarely spoken of at length in public.
Despite its rarity, assisted dying has taken a high profile in recent public discourse.
This is an important discussion, and Revd Dr Jason Goroncy, of the University of Divinity’s Whitley College, asks what it means for
“Christians (who) have made a habit of caring for, and of living and worshipping with, the dying and the dead.”
We are grateful to Sage Publications, publishers of the University’s journal, Pacifica, for making this article available for us to offer to the public discourse.
