End of Life Planning
Death is not something that we often like to consider, but it is an inescapable part of being human. The Fellowship has created a helpful planning document that will assist you in your end-of-life planning. This document provides you with an opportunity to organize your thoughts, records and practical information related to a serious illness and death. Doing so is a gift that you give to those who care about you and may provide you with the peace of mind that comes from “having things in order.” If you are willing, we would like to keep a copy of the first page in the Fellowship office in case of an emergency. Click the button to access the document.
For information on how Unitarian Universalists approach the subject, you may visit this page on the UUA website: Beliefs about Life and Death.
Starting in March! Deepening the Conversation about End-of-Life A 5-part experiential/interactive workshop series
All Sessions held on Saturdays 9:00-11:30 a.m.
Many who attended the popular Thoughtful Endings series indicated a need to “dig deeper,” to explore the emotional and spiritual underpinnings of preparing for your death, considering your legacy, and arranging for your final send-off. This five part series will be facilitated by Fellowship members who have an abiding interest in helping people find peace with their dying and death.

Thoughtful Endings is the name of the series of free workshops that members of the Fellowship put on regularly, to help people plan ahead for the end of their life in a way that supports their values and is a benefit to them and their families.
Stay tuned for information about when this series will be offered next. For more information on end of life planning at the Fellowship, contact Constance Holden at email@example.com.
