Announcing 2nd Annual Senior Ministry Seminar

10/15/2015

Please join us for the 2nd Annual Senior Ministry Seminar, "Christian Faith and the Art of Dying: A Day of Reflection and Conversation," on Saturday, November 14 in the Parish Hall.  The seminar will be led by Dr. Timothy Sedgwick.

About the day, Tim Sedgwick wrote the following:
My hope for this day is to offer reflections from those who have given these questions much thought in order to enable our own conversation about what is most important in our lives and what this means in our living and dying as we age. From
questions on “What makes life human?” and “What does the body tell the spirit?”, I want to turn to hard questions about
faithful choices at the end of life. Practically this requires addressing questions of things done and left undone. 

  • 9:00 a.m. Gathering for coffee, etc.
