Group Discussion on Being Mortal
Eben Carsey, MD, MDiv, is offering to facilitate a group for discussion and personal sharing regarding Being Mortal, a book by Atul Gawande, MD, and the issues that this book raises in our lives. The group will meet 8:30 to 9:30 am on Sundays, Oct. 9th through Nov. 13th. If necessary, the larger group may break into smaller groups to facilitate inclusion of everyone in the discussion and sharing. A rather long NY Times review of the book can be found at http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2015/01/08/better-way-out/ . A shorter review can be found at http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/17/arts/being-mortal-by-atul-gawande.html?_r=0 .
