About Fred Grewe
...
Fred Grewe is a Board Certified Chaplain (Association of Professional Chaplains) with a Master's Degree in Pastoral Care from the Aquinas School of Theology in St. Louis and an ordained Congregationalist minister working for Providence Hospice in Medford, Oregon. His interest in working with the dying began in the early 1990's with the death of his best friend who succumbed to AIDS.
Joyfully married to the kindest woman on the planet, Fred lives in Ashland, Oregon with wife Cyndi, their incredibly smart, funny, and good looking son Elijah, and Finch the wonder dog.
Fred is a mystery - even to himself. He is a middle-aged, bald, white, fat man who believes God loves him very much and the power of this belief has helped transform a frightened, angry, little man into a more loving and considerate human being.

Thats the gist of What the Dying Have Taught Me About Living: The Awful Amazing Grace of God, by Fred Grewe. In the past 10 years as chaplain with Providence Hospice, and before that with Ashland Community Hospital, Grewe has helped more than 1,000 people through the dying experience, and he notes that its taught him to do what most of them did to milk the most out of life. For Grewe, this means now, not at deaths doorstep. What I learned from them was to cultivate gratitude, surrender to reality (of death) and to shower the people I love with love, says Grewe, who is working on his doctorate in end-of-life care at Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley. Surrendering to reality is realizing that death is natural and were all going to do it, said Grewe, joking as he often does in his books that life is a sexually transmitted disease that always ends terminally. Grewes colorful career took him through a bachelors degree in acting and directing, then 30 years as a Pentecostal minister, then ordination as a Congregational minister who is married to a Buddhist. If theres wisdom anywhere, I need all the help I can get, says Grewe, 61. When you sit with dying folks, a lot of nonsense gets kicked out of them by the diagnosis, the pain so you really get to talk about whats important. People who experience an easy passing, he notes, are those with the ability for gratitude.
