Abstract

Joyce Hutchinson and Joyce Rupp (1999) have a rich history of capturing the essence of the human experience and the spiritual implications within these experiences. They suggest that the two most vital moments, defining moments, in the human experience are birth and death. How a person approaches dying becomes the bulwark on which rests all that affords meaning and integrity for a person.
