Friendship Sunday and Adult Ed first meeting, September 10; Fall 2017 newsletter;

Fall is nearly here and that means Friendship Sunday

Picnic/potluck time!         When: Sunday, September 10.

Immediately after worship, we will gather on the front lawn for a fun time of fellowship, food, and fall weather. If it rains, we will gather in the downstairs dining room. Deacons will provide drinks, brats, hamburgers, and veggie burgers.  If you or your guest have  particular dietary restrictions, please let me or another deacon know.

Please bring:  A Friend!,  A dish to share   (we encourage salads and other hearty sides especially);  A blanket or camp chair

We are looking seeing everyone,  socializing with each other, and coming together for another wonderful year of worship.

 

Adult Education will discuss 5-6 books on a variety of topics in 2017-2018. The initial schedule is as follows:

Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, by Atul Gawande ( 10-24, Oct. 1-15). Modern medicine has triumphed over illness and injury, making many diseases manageable instead of harrowing. But with aging and death, the goals of medicine may run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Medicine should not only enable health and survival, but also wellbeing. In this book, Gawande examines the cracks in the system of health care to the aged and the seriously ill who might have different needs and expectations than family members expect.
