When life is good and we are in the prime of our lives, it is often easier to sing praises. But what if our lives are drawing to a close and we are in the prime of our lives with regrets of things left undone and unsaid,” said Rev. Carter. “Join me as we explore how two individuals, whom I was fortunate enough to have the privilege to minister to in their final days of life, came to love, acceptance, and thanksgiving.”
