“I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.”
This month, we'll be closely examining death in the effort to "Make Friends With the End."
Death is what makes us human and what validates our existence in the world. Because we are alive, we will die. It is as much a part of our human lifecycle as waking up each morning. One way to celebrate life is to recognize it is finite. Every minute counts!
On our bucket list for this Assembly, we will:
- Learn why recognizing and accepting death is a healthy goal for happiness- Find ways to discuss death with our loved ones from young to old
- Reflect on why death is really hard to think about without humor (and why humor can be helpful)
- Learn what death means to someone who experiences it on a daily basis
- Sing life celebrating songs
- And a few surprises!
- Scott S. will be MC
- Ryan Hicks will share "I'm doing my best"
- Kate Hauk will be discussing how her experience as a hospice chaplain shapes her views of life
- Joe B. will be leading the music
Come with an open mind, a tender heart, and a yearning to face life head-on, as it’s (probably) the only one we got.
Also, come with an empty stomach! After the Assembly, we will be having our usual potluck! Please bring food if you can. Food can be the perfect catalyst for bonding.
Our venue is wheelchair accessible.
*Make sure to RSVP only once on EITHER Facebook or Meetup so we can get an accurate count and make our service welcoming for all.
