(Don’t Fear) The Reaper

Modified on: September 5, 2019

An exploration of modern death–Adult Education–Fall, 2019
Death is a difficult topic to think or talk about, but a necessary one if we or our loved ones are to have the best possible end of life experience. This series will look at death and dying from a global perspective, and then we will talk about what you can do to make things the best they can possibly be in this phase of life that we will all face at some point.
Presenters will be UUCS members Garrett Snipes, MD, Medical Director, Spartanburg Regional Hospice, and Lisa Mowery, BCST, SEP, LMBT, who offers specialized support for all stages of the dying process.
The sessions will be on the 4th Sunday of September, October, November, and January from 9:30-10:30 am in the Sanctuary. Topics in the series will be as follows:

I. Introduction: Modern Death in 5 Easy Questions – September 22

II. Exploring the Process of Dying – October 27

III. Dying Well: An Oxymoron? – November 24

IV. Conclusion: Layers of Support at End of Life – January 26.

Please join us for what we hope will be a frank and honest, but not dour, look at death and dying. We also hope to give you some ideas about the things you can do to plan and prepare yourselves and the people you care about. This series is relevant for adults of all ages.
These sessions will be followed by a Saturday workshop which will provide opportunities to complete end of life forms and define individual intentions. Childcare can be arranged for this workshop with prior notice. Date to be announced later.
