Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages
A Congregational Care Series
Faith UMC offers a monthly series with guest speakers who will help us prepare for significant changes in one’s life. The hope is that the talks themselves may evolve into support groups or new small group ministries. Each event will include a catered meal and panel discussion or lecture, followed by a time for questions and answers.
Hospital Warrior: How To Get the Best Care For Your Loved One
May 15, 2018, 6:30-9:00pm, Fellowship Hall
Our popular pastoral care informational dinner series, “Life Transitions: Navigating the Narrow Passages,” will feature guest-speaker Bonnie Friedman.
Bonnie’s mantra, “Fight for the Living!” and her zeal stems from twenty-four years of advocating for her husband Bob through the course of fourteen separate hospitalizations - some very serious and life-threatening. Before she became a “hospital warrior,” Bonnie was a professional communicator for over forty years, working for both the federal government and managing her own consulting business. Bob is thriving now; and Bonnie has turned her hard-won knowledge into information for others to use.
Note: Mrs. Friedman will have copies of her book on sale after the presentation. If you are interested, be sure to bring a checkbook or cash. The cost for the book is $16.00.
Please RSVP by Thursday, May 10 to reserve a place so that we know how much food to order. (Scott Roby, Faith’s Director of Congregational Care firstname.lastname@example.org)
