Adult Ed Seminar Series: “The Last Things We Talk About”

 

After Worship, May 1, 15, and 22

Most of us will get older. And all of us will die. So will our family members. These are hard facts that most of us don’t like to dwell on. But learning about and taking certain steps now can make the aging process and life’s final transition far easier, for both ourselves and our loved ones.
 
On three Sundays after the worship service – May 1, May 15 and May 22 – PCLG’s Adult Ed Committee is offering a special seminar on how to prepare for our own or a family member’s later years and death. The seminar, “The Last Things We Talk About,” will be led by the Rev. Dr. Elizabeth (Libby) Boatwright, a former parish associate at Sunnyvale Presbyterian and an expert in aging and end-of-life issues.
 
Boatwright, who is also a certified financial planner, is currently a chaplain at Stanford, where she specializes in hospice and palliative care. Over the last 30 years she has walked alongside hundreds of individuals and families both before and after a death. She’s seen first-hand that preparing for the end of life can greatly ease confusion, anxiety and grief.    
 
Among the topics the seminar will cover are: identifying your legacy; moving and downsizing; planning a memorial; handling legal, medical and financial matters; putting your digital “house” in order; and preparing spiritually for the end of an earthly life. 
 
All three sessions will be held in the Social Hall from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The seminar is free and will include informative handouts, but you may purchase a copy of Boatwright’s book, “The Last Things We Talk About,” for $15 at the door, or on Amazon.  
 
You may attend one or two sessions, but you’ll get the greatest benefit by coming to all three. Drop-ins are welcome, but if you do plan to attend we ask that you register in advance on SignUp Genius by clicking here.
