In 2007, the Reverend Wendy Fenn served as spiritual director at Faith Presbyterian Hospice and the Reverend Dr. Fran Shelton served as associate pastor for congregational care at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church.
What We Believe
Wendy and Fran regularly met to share their faith and their experiences in serving those in the process of grief and mourning. They agreed to design a model of bereavement which would contain the following components of faith and understandings:
The Holy Spirit is the source of comfort and strength
Grief is both a leveler and a uniter, bringing together persons from diverse faith traditions and backgrounds
The pain of grief is intense and lingering, calling for on-going support
Personal stories possess the power to inspire and encourage
Table fellowship and the breaking of bread instills hope
