Following up on direction from the 2015 ELCIC National Convention, the ELCIC's National Church Council (NCC) established a task force, "to encourage conversations across our church regarding the needs of people in times of death and dying, and to review [the ELCIC's] current Resolution on Decisions-at-the-End-of-Life (1997)."
The Decisions at the End of Life Task Force has prepared an ELCIC Study Guide for Conversations on Medical Assistance in Dying to encourage conversations across our church regarding the needs of people in times of death and dying.
The task force hopes to receive input from individuals and groups who have participated in these conversations. The deadline for submissions has been extended to April 30, 2018.
Recommendations from the task force will be submitted to NCC at the September 2018 meeting. Following this, NCC will make proposals for delegates to consider at the 2019 ELCIC National Convention.
