Berkson

Come join the group in the RE room Sunday mornings at 9:15 – 9:30 for coffee and visiting, with the study proper to begin at 9:30. We finish at 10:15 to allow time for a break before our Sunday service begins at 10:30.

Our current study is a filmed series of lectures on death and dying, presented by Professor Mark Berkson of Hamline University. Death, as a subject for examination, is often shunned and considered “negative” or “depressing.” This is a shame because we rarely get to share our ideas about death and examine other points of view. Dr. Berkson’s lectures are certainly not depressing and are always interesting and informative. In the series, death is approached from the perspectives of law, science philosophy, psychology, culture, and religion. You will probably be introduced to some ways of looking at death that you have never thought of!
