Upcoming Programming

“Living the Examined Life until the End of Life”

Sunday, November 18, Following service in the Sanctuary (12:30pm)
Session Leader:  Mark B. Peterson, ED.D., author of "Your Life, Your Death, Your Choice"  

Together, we will face into the hard truths of human mortality and the decisions we and our loved ones can make now for the end of life to be a time of grace, gratitude, and dignity. No matter your age, whether you are facing end-of-life challenges, caring for loved ones facing these challenges, or simply want to live a more “examined life,” these sessions are for you.
The first session of our search in this series will focus on how to anticipate rather than react to a medical event that has occurred. This planning process enables us to initiate difficult conversations with parents or children and helps us determine what we want from the medical community. Perhaps most important, it can help us to avoid unnecessary suffering and strengthen relationships with our loved ones. Stay tuned for another workshop coming this winter: What We Should Know about Elder Law. Questions? Contact Heather Speirs at


We want to stay in touch! Please subscribe to our weekly email newsletter for announcements about upcoming programs.
