This collection of informative, inspirational, and insightful speech transcripts can be a source of encouragement for congregations and individuals, who are serving as care-givers. The speeches, given by Dr. Earl Shelp, co-founder of Interfaith CarePartners, and Dr. John Burk, President of Interfaith CarePartners, can be read online or downloaded for use with groups. There are also links for specific disease information from national organizations, such as the Alzheimer’s Association, American Cancer Society, and American Diabetes Association. Based in Houston, TX, Interfaith CarePartners is a network of congregation partnerships that provide compassionate care through volunteers; the organization, however, is open to providing support and instructional material to congregations outside that area.
