When Indianapolis author Bernie Gilmer needed professional input on two specific topics in his new book titled Dialing in on DI-AL-Y-SIS, he had only to turn to his second-oldest son, Archie Gilmer.
The popular topics related to whether going on dialysis is an albatross or a blessing, and whether quitting or refusing dialysis treatments is suicide. Archie is the minister/evangelist of the Williamston Church of Christ in North Carolina, and is also the town’s chaplain for both the police and fire departments. In addition, he is a volunteer policeman and when time allows a part-time online blogger.
His varied background following his teen years has enabled him to develop multiple experiences with people in all aspects of life over the past quarter of a century. At his father’s request, he responded by crafting a dissertation titled Dialysis and Faith that offered perspectives on the dialysis questions, with excerpts from his writing appearing in two different chapters of the book.
