Death Where Is Thy Sting: End of Life Issues
Leader: Dr. Franz Wippold
Location: Auditorium
We all face death; sometimes it our own, or that of a spouse or child, of a friend. However, culture and society have more and more marginalized discussions of the topic, especially discussions from a Christian perspective. Death has become just one more disease to conquer or, even worse, an inconvenience to be ignored or denied. Nevertheless, death and the fear of death remain a source of deep anxiety for many people, believers and unbelievers alike. As secular worldviews and government actions they reduce the role of the church in this important area, especially on matters in which there is a distinctive Christian perspective, such as: aging, death, and ethical/bioethical decisions. This series is designed to open a conversation about important concerns surrounding the close of life, and to dispel the myths our secular culture has created. Topics will be discussed from a clear Christian perspective – a perspective that offers the only true foundation of hope and joy that comes through faith in Christ.
Topics will include:
How we die: Myth vs. Reality
When we die: Brian Death revisited
After we die: Caring for those who grieve
Before we die: Acceptance and preparation
When should we die: The questions of euthanasia and assisted suicide
The life everlasting

II Corinthians: Healing For The Wounded Church
Lead: Doug Mendis
Location: Parlor
The Corinthian church had been severely wound by various severe sins, internal disputes, and division into factions; but now by the grace of God a time of healing had come. The Corinthians had faced their issues and were in the processes of dealing with them in a godly manner. The Apostle Paul now writes to them and gives them on how to move forward to complete the spiritual healing, both on individuals in the church and the congregation as a whole, they are in the midst of. That advice is as valid today as it was nearly two millennia ago. We will look at the themes Paul covers and see how we can use his counsel in our lives today.
