End of Life
The Episcopal Church has put out a wonderful document, Planning for the End of Life, that walks us through issues and details that while we aren't excited about addressing, are necessary. The document helps us with our medical directives, funeral liturgy, and writing out wills. In the Spring we will have a Going Away Party where we will go over these issues. I'll hand out copies of Planning for the End of Life and together we will go over common questions. We'll have an attorney and other professionals who can help answer some of your questions. Once you have filled everything out, you may leave a copy in the church office. Many times your priest is one of the first persons to be contacted in times of emergency and death. Having your wishes at the church office may actually be one of the best places to keep them. Please feel free to get a head start and download the document.
