Hospice Meaning…

The background of the word hospice, stems from another word…hospitality.  Recently I heard a brief description of hospitality as, “giving brotherly love to a stranger.”

Any one who works in hospice will know this is a perfect word picture of end-of-life care.  You commonly walk in to a strangers private world, learn intimate details of their troubles and have the opportunity to care for them as if you are a blood relative.

Be encouraged to all who in one way or another are “giving brotherly love to a stranger.”
