Facing Death With Life
Rescheduled!  Look for it in the Spring!
Facilitators: Irene Laurie & Margaret McFadyen
This program facilitates a process of personal reflection, learning, and spiritual growth focused on the topic of death and dying. The program is not a grief support group, nor an intellectual study of death. It includes sociological information and reflection, theological reflection, personal and shared narrative, creative expression, journaling, and practical learning and preparation. It helps participants develop a personal recognition of its meaning in their life, with the goal of finding a closer and more comfortable relationship with their own inevitable death, including the preparation, the moment of death, the grieving, and the living on.

Lifecraft: The Art of Meaning in the Everyday
Facilitator: Tamara McClellan
Invites participants to explore together new ways of discovering & creating
