Visiting a hospital or home with a terminally ill patient can be uncomfortable. We may say the wrong thing, fret about our physical response to thier decline, or even be anxious that we won't have a family member's answers. But our fear should not keep us from serving those who need the gospel most. A flock who faces immediate death needs vulnerable, compassionate service in the name of Christ. https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/7-ways-shepherd-terminally-ill/
