We have a new book in the resource center that many of you may find valuable, Cancer—Now What? by Dr. Kenneth Haugk the founder of the Stephen Ministry Program. First Lutheran congregation member and Stephen Minister Randy Nedrelo recommends the book.
Randy says: “In writing this book, Dr. Haugk and his staff interviewed over 2,000 people who experienced cancer in a personal way. They compiled these experiences into a wonderful resource for anyone that is experiencing cancer either themselves or through a loved one. It is a practical guide that covers topics from how to tell your family that you have cancer to what questions to ask the doctors and where to learn more about your disease. Also, the book explores the strong emotions that people experience after hearing that they have cancer. There even are chapters about spiritual concerns and feeling angry with God. It’s easy to read and filled with quotes from the numerous people who contributed to this book.”
Please stop by the Resource Center outside the church office to buy a copy. See Bridget Crave if you have any questions about the Resource Center.
