Upcoming Adult Education: Death, Where is Thy Sting?
An Easter Conversation about Death and Dying
As Christians, we are resurrection people, and when better than Easter to have life-giving conversations about death? Nearly 90% of Americans feel that it is important to talk openly about the end of life, but only a third of that number have actually done so-a gap with serious implications for ourselves and our loved ones. Using the framework and resources of The Conversation Project (theconversationproject.org), a national public engagement campaign to spark open dialogue about what matters to us at the end of life, we will explore what our faith has to teach us about death, and how we can live into this season of resurrection by fearlessly speaking with those we love. These Adult Education sessions will be led by Hal Edmonson, a staff member with The Conversation Project and a student at Harvard Divinity, and Michael Robinson. Please join us from 9-10 am in the Great Hall on April 23 & 30, and May 14. All are welcome! 
Godspell
 
On April 23, the Sunday after Easter, we will be celebrating our 3RD ANNUAL GODSPELL MASS!!!  So buckle up and get ready to ROCK and SING and maybe even DANCE (or at least see some dancing)!

If you would like to participate as part of the chorus, there will be a rehearsal on Thursday, April 20 @ 7:00 pm in the sanctuary, and then a final prep rehearsal on Sunday, April 23 @ 9:00 am; please come and join in. You do not need to be able to read music to sing in the chorus - much of the music is easy to learn - and it should be lots of fun!
