Death is often a taboo subject in our society. But why would we want to avoid a subject that is relevant to every living creature on earth? We at Tricycle don’t think that we should, which is why this week’s Tricycle Talk features Harvard-educated theologian and end-of-life care educator Stephen Jenkinson. Listen to Tricycle’s Sam Mowe speak with Jenkinson about the ways that we care for the dying and why he thinks “the cradle of your love of life is death.”

Jenkinson is also the subject of the documentary Griefwalker, which is showing this month at the Tricycle Film Club. Supporting and Sustaining Members of the Tricycle Community can watch the film here.
