We’re going to start our Adult Religious Education program this fall by doing a close reading of Love and Death by Forrest Church, long-time minister at All Souls Unitarian Universalist in New York City. The book is a series of meditations on dying and what remains behind written from the time Rev. Church was diagnosed with an incurable throat cancer in 2006 until his death in 2009 at the age of 60.
We will be meeting Tuesdays at 7:30, starting on October 21st when we’ll meet to make introductions to each other and the book. Then we’ll meet on Oct. 28, Nov 11, 18 & 25. We’ll be reading about 40 pages per week so there will be plenty of time to share personal stories and reactions as we read together.
I’d be happy to get copies of the book for anyone who wishes for $13.00; you can also buy it to read on any eBook reader, and there are used copies for less if you wish to order your own. If you want me to buy a book for you, you can pay me at the first class when I’ll distribute the ones I’ve bought.
Please sign up during coffee hour, OR you can just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to let me know if you want me to order a copy of the book for you.
- Rev. Paul
