11:45 am Being Mortal

Every Sunday, from 11/10/2019 to 11/24/2019, 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM

Coordinator: The Rev. Gretchen Strohmaier

Join Reverend Gretchen, Oncologist Dr. Sally Scott, and Nurse Practitioner Susannah Ries, both members of our parish, for a 3-week class based on the book, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End by Atul Gawande. Learn about themes from the book, see clips from the documentary, and learn from the experience of these health care professionals. The class will address finding meaning at the end of life, dealing with the uncertain future, navigating communication with health care providers, and completing and using advance directives. The book will serve as a backdrop for the class, providing examples and context. Reading the book is not a requirement for participation.

     The class meets on Sundays after the 10:15 service from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. in the Guild Room on November 10, 17, and 24. Light refreshments will be provided. Please register for the class by contacting Rev. Gretchen at the church office, 542-2167 or .
