Fall Neighborhood Discussion Groups - Sign up now! 

October 13, 2015

Neighborhood groups are forming for anyone involved in issues of aging or who have aging family members. This fall, read the book Being Mortal by surgeon and bestselling author Atul Gawande. The book offers a moving and clear-eyed look at aging and death in our society, and the harms we do in turning it into a medical problem rather than a human one.

Discussion questions include:

  • Whose life do you admire?
  • Does our faith help us deal with losses in the aging process?
  • What would make your life more meaningful?
  • What are the tough discussions you need to have?

Seven discussion groups will be held in regional locations beginning week of October 19, for four sessions.

  • Downtown, led by Warren Smith and Dorothy Mann/meets Tuesday evenings
  • Madison Park/Capitol Hill, led by Jocelyn Alt, Edie Lackland, Diane and Dennis Kenny/meets Tuesday evenings
  • South Seattle, led by Phyllis and John Daniels, meets Wednesday evenings
  • West Seattle, led by Jim Spraker, meets Wednesday evenings
  • NW Seattle/Ballard, led by Connie and Mark Sandstrom, Cindy and Tad Anderson/meets Friday evenings
  • NE Seattle, led by Caroline Becker and Mike Pierson/meets Monday evenings
  • Eastside/Mercer Island, led by Bob Turner and Betty Behmke, meets Wednesday evenings

Please sign up with group leader and pick up a copy of Being Mortal ($15) in church office.
