Adult Book Study “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande

September 18 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:15 am on Sunday, repeating until October 16, 2022

This adult book study will take place on Sunday mornings following worship services. It will be led by our Parish Nurse, Jeanne Hickman. She has experience working with people in the final stages of their lives. Through the author and the leadership of Jeanne, you will examine some choices for dealing with end of life decisions.

“Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit.”

We will all die. This book will offer some insight into dying with grace and dignity. Planning ahead on your part will ease the burden for your family and loved ones when the time comes. The author will walk you through “the talk” he had with his family members and how it helped him when the time came.

Come and learn together.

Please contact Jeanne Hickman (269)965-0574 if you are interested in attending this class and if you will need a book.
