Rev. Steve Goyer, Rev. Bill Hoff and Rev. Carol DiGiusto
The prospect of facing the end of life-our own or a loved one's-gives rise to many important and sometimes difficult questions. And then there are the final arrangements to be made and perhaps a memorial service to be planned. It is helpful to us and our families for us to have prepared in advance for these inevitabilities. This class will provide an opportunity to consider the decisions that may affect our living well at the end of life and appropriately celebrating the life that is now with God.
