Past Dates

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

Back Room at 2nd Street Kitchen
BackRoom lecture series: Death is Hard to Talk About. Let's Do it Anyway. - 6:30
2nd Street
Westcliffe, CO 81252
Price: Your donation will go to Ronald McDonald House

What could be more important than death? Well, lots of things. But it's certainly up there with love, living, and purpose. So why is it so hard to talk about. To get us started, I'll do a little reading, a little singing, and then ask some questions to get the conversation going. The focus will be on life and the inevitability of death: how to prepare, how we think about it, why we're afraid, etc. The direction of the conversation will be determined by those who are there. Some may talk, others may choose to listen. I'm looking forward to it.
