Preparing for Death: for yourself or others

This is the title of a group that I will be leading at Third Reformed Church (Pella, IA) that is scheduled for Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 8:00 from September 22 to November 10 (2020), meeting in room 103. (If you come in the north door, at the lower level, just go straight in and veer to the right of the cafe and we are down that hallway.) This will be similar to the group that Beth Loux and I co-led last spring . Here is the description used for the group:

We spend time getting ready for meals, dates, exams, interviews, proposals, vacations, visits, competitions, births, retirement, services and so much more. How much time do we spend preparing for our own death or for someone else's? What does the Bible tell us about this transition into eternity and how to die well? What concrete steps can we take to make this transition easier? We will learn to prepare for death by spending about half of each session discussing a topic (often guided by a guest expert) and the other half by discussing the excellent book "Dying Well" by John Wyatt.

[I have a one extra copy of the book that is available a bit cheaper than at Amazon on a first-come basis.]

Below are a variety of links to materials of use for this group. The Annotated Action Steps and the Resources are the two pages that may of the most value since the others are either handed out or done in class. As you read the book, and want to know more about some the people or places mentioned, you can check out the Book comments page that I built as I read the book and wanted to learn more.
