2008: The Same But Different


In March of 2008, the 25 organizations comprising the Caring Coalition presented its first conference, The Same But Different, which explored the similarities and differences in rituals and customs practiced by different faiths at the end of life. The keynote speaker was Thomas Lynch and panelists included clergy from five denominations. Attracting more than 700 attendees, the conference was professionally accredited for social workers and nurses, and was also attended by many clergy members and those in the funeral business.
