The Good Death, Unitarian Universalist Style

Rev. Ritchie recounts the many institutions and practices, from rural cemeteries to cremation to memorial societies and green burials, that Unitarian Universalists have put in place to make sure that the dying, the dead and those in mourning are not exploited, but rather granted the maximum of agency and dignity in their hour of need.

Stay (either in person or on Zoom) for the “End of Life Workshop” that will begin at noon in the Sanctuary, led by Cathy Elkins and Alice Faryna from the Funeral Consumers Alliance of Central Ohio. Get your answers to these and more questions:
How to evaluate the General Price List that funeral homes must give to all customers?
Where you should store your will?
Which advance directives every adult person should have?
Who the state of Ohio designates as your legal next of kin? (Maybe your eldest son is not a good fit for handling legal affairs)
What are the hazards of prepaid funerals?
Embalming is rarely required and can be refused?
To attend the workshop on Zoom simply stay on the same Zoom link used for Sunday worship.

Current Covid Policy: Vaccines are strongly recommended.  Masks are not required, but please consider that masks are our best roll for preventing respiratory disease spread.  Both KN95 masks and regular surgical masks will be provided at the door.  The three pews in the Northeast corner of the sanctuary will be reserved for masked persons only, with the pew in front of those left empty.  If you are ill, or have been exposed to illness but are not feeling ill, please join the service online.  

Susan Ritchie (she, her, hers) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
