Join a Death Cafe where people gather to discuss death with no particular agenda other than sharing and awareness
DATES: Tuesday November 27th 6:30- 8:30 pm OR Thursday November 29th 1:00 to 3:00 pm
LOCATION: 603 Wellington Crescent at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg
At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. And the goal is helping to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives. Death Cafes are an international movement founded by Jon Underwood in 2011, based on the work of Bernard Cretan and you can learn more at deathcafe.com.
Facilitation by members from Community Deathcare Manitoba. Light refreshments will be provided.
If unable to sign up online, please call Elizabeth at 204-475-1204 and leave your name, email and home phone along with the afternoon (Thur) or evening (Tue) preference for attending.
From the Minister's Study - November 2018
While all North American UUs have seven principles that guide our choices and six sources that nourish our spirits, Canadian UUs also created five aspirations that help us grow. Last month, I told you that I’d be writing about each of these. This month, our aspiration is Radically Inclusive, which is perfect to follow our Western Region Fall Gathering theme of Building the Beloved Community.
So what’s the difference between “inclusive” and “radically inclusive”? Merriam-Webster defines radical thusly: “very different from the usual or traditional” and “favoring extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions”. So what happens when we apply that to the idea of inclusivity?
