June 27 – End of Life Working Group Forum
Virtual Event on Zoom
The End of Life Working Group announces an on-line forum for Friends on June 27 from 10-12 EDT, to initiate a series of conversations that explore difficult topics. Depending on the response, we are prepared to offer multiple future forums to help explore the issues, the needs, and the various responses of Quakers worldwide to this same topic of living and dying well as Friends.
We know that many of us are coping with unarticulated fears about our mortality since the risks of becoming terminally ill are higher during a pandemic. As Friends seeking truth and love in a considered life, we recognize that this virus affords us the opportunity to prioritize our wishes about the end of our life. Especially for older Friends, it probably is already on our minds, however clandestinely.
The working group has gathered resources and queries that are now uploaded on the BYM website, and has committed to respond to Meetings’ and individual needs. Among us are trained professionals with years of expertise in multiple areas. Please refer to our webpage, look over the queries, and send us your questions. RSVP is requested. The link will be emailed to all registrants thereafter.
We encourage Friends facing personal situations regarding end of life issues to write to us anytime for individualized support. We will do our best to listen with trained ears and support your discernment. RSVP: End of Life Working Group firstname.lastname@example.org
