“Things That Matter Most: Transformational Healing Near End of Life”

For hospital chaplains serving patients nearing death, few things are as sorrowful as unreconciled estrangement between the dying and those close to them. The emotional and spiritual pain of broken, unhealed relationships can be far more intense than any physical pain. But there is hope. Reconciliation and healing are possible. Rev. Greg will share insights from his experiences as a companion to dying patients and those close to them.

Rev. Greg is a UU minister and staff chaplain at the Gundersen Health System hospital in La Crosse. He graduated from Andover Newton Theological School in 2019, earning an M.Div. degree with a specialist certificate in Spiritual and Pastoral Care.  His early clinical training was at Boston Medical Center and the University of Minnesota Medical Center. He completed two years of chaplaincy residency at Gundersen before beginning his service as a staff chaplain. He draws inspiration from humanism, religious naturalism, and the Tao Te Ching.  He believes the entire Universe is sacred. He is also known to consult the philosophical tenets of Star Trek –  and the wisdom of Yoda.
