Speaking and reading about the dying experience is not morbid, rather it will teach you how to live with care and appreciation.
For simple, useful, concrete suggestions to use when that time comes, join me on Thursday evening, April 16, 7:00 p.m.at the Baptist Medical Center’s James L. Henry auditorium to hear Megory Anderson.
Anderson is a theologian, author, educator, liturgist and Executive Director of the nonprofit SACRED DYING FOUNDATION in San Franciso.
Her presentation will not be about mourning and how to handle grief, it will not be about the mythology of death or funeral planning. Rather, she will teach us how to be with a dying loved one, how to provide them with something more than pat answers and how to make it a meaningful experience.
We will learn how to use a variety of things, such as music, rituals, poetry or prayer that have been an important part of the person’s life experiences.
