In this episode, Saul and Joe talk with Rev. Tammy Wurm. Tammy currently works as a Hospice Chaplain in Oregon and also as a death café educator. Prior to being a hospice chaplain, she worked in a hospital for 39 years as a nurses assistant.
In 2017, she completed her twelve month course in Interfaith Studies followed by
a six month CPE program. In September 2019 the unexpected door of opportunity opened wide when she accepted the position to be a hospice chaplain in Oregon. Although she grew up in the Evangelical church, Tammy has now left behind her ties to Christianity and currently identifies as Agnostic Humanist. She likes to say that she is more drawn to the human spirit than the holy spirit. Warmly embracing her unknowingness which in turn allows others to do the same.
