Red, Green and Gold: Christmas in the Golden Years
Tuesday, December 19th 12:30 - 2:30 p. m.
Christmas can be a time of great joy as we gather together with family and friends. But as we get older it can also a time of shifting responsibilities, expectations and traditions. Colleen Dotzert, our Pastoral Care Intern, will lead us in some thoughts about this wonderful yet sometimes difficult time of year. Some traditions have to be changed or stopped (red), some we continue (green) and there are many treasured moments (gold). Come prepared to share your own stories and wisdom.


Formation Hour “Memories that Linger”

You are invited to share a Christmas memory that connects with your faith story. Think about events that exemplify the true meaning of Christmas, that helped to shape your faith and/or important rituals that you have kept throughout the years. If you have a story to share please indicate this on the sign up sheet on the bulletin board.


Christmas Eve Day

is on a Sunday this year. We will be having a service in the morning along with our traditional Christmas Eve Service.


New Year’s Eve Day <>/h4>

A time of singing Carols and storytelling.


Being Mortal by Atul Gawande

Modern medicine has transformed our ability to deal with health issues. But when it comes to the realities of aging and death, what medicine can do often runs counter to what it should do. Through research and stories Gwande looks at this issue. Through his riveting, and honest writing he shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life -- all the way to the end.

Members of Wilmot are encouraged to read Being Mortal this winter. In the Spring we will initiate conversation groups that revolve around the insight from this book. Purchase your own or borrow one of the two books that are part of our library. Don’t want to read the book? No problem. A summary of the contents will be made available. Conversation groups will also be organized for those who have not read the book.
