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.

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.

THOUGHTFUL ENDINGS, March 26 – April 30, 2022
Time to exercise some “energy of action”.  Perhaps you have been putting off making plans for the end stages of your life and your death. Make 2022 the year when you really do it!
The Caring Council is pleased to announce a six part workshop series designed to inspire, motivate and prepare you.
The program will be delivered via Zoom but the leaders are planning for small groups and 1:1, as well.  It is our goal to create a space in which you will learn, dig deep, prepare and talk with your fellow UUs and your families. We encourage you to attend all sessions but you will be free to pick and choose. Click here for a description of workshop sessions and to register.   If you have questions about the workshops, contact Constance Holden.
