Spiritual Experience at End of Life - A Community Conversation

Thursday, September 29 from 708:30 pm


Come for a casual evening to consider the spiritual experiences of end of life, wonder about how God is present in and through us, and ask questions in a safe space. Ben Tousley, M.Div., Spiritual Counselor, Cooley Dickinson Hospice, and Rev. Jennifer Valentine, pastor of the First Congregational Church of Southampton, UCC, will each offer insight that will nourish small group conversations. This event developed out of a Southampton Public Library book discussion about Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal. It is not necessary to read the book to participate, but it’s worth the time and attention to read it!

Read To A Rabbit! Thursday September 29 from 3:30-4:30 pm

Are you learning to read? Come and practice with a quiet listener! Join Amelia Wilson and her bunny in the Conference Room. Sign up for your 10 minute slot at the Youth Desk, or call Johanna at 413-527-9480.
