I was recently talking with a friend who regretted the fact that family had not discussed plans for end-of-life care or topics related to dying/death because a loved one was in the process of dying and it was too late. While our society struggles to talk about dying and death, it is important have such conversations for a variety of reasons! In light of the importance of such discussions, I will once again offer the series of lessons I created for my Doctor of Ministry degree which centers around discussions on dying and death as well as life and living. The series will occur during Lent and begin Sunday, March 1 and end Sunday, March 29. We will meet from 5-6:30 in Room 202. I would like a commitment from at least 8 people, so we are sure to have good discussion. These discussions have been very meaningful to those who have participated in the past so I hope you will consider attending! Please sign-up by February 24 by email ([email protected]) or by calling the church office (896-1161). Topics include cultural and personal views on death, beliefs on death and afterlife, end-of-life decisions, funerals and burials, and bucket lists and legacies.
