CCS Friday – How It Ends
Apr 30, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Join us for a reading from and discussion of “How It Ends” by playwright Debbie Patterson. “How It Ends” is an immersive, interactive dance/theatre piece, produced in Winnipeg in 2019. It explores end-of-life issues, seen through the lens of disability. Playwright Debbie Patterson uses her lived experience of a progressive, debilitating, incurable illness to provide a new understanding of what makes life worth living, the value of suffering, and the pleasure of surrendering control. Debbie will read excerpts from her play and there will be time for small group and large group discussion. This CCS Friday is included as part of the “Grief and Loss” learning circle and will be attended by students developing their skills in providing spiritual care in the context of death and grief.
Online conversations to help us all to respond faithfully to emerging issues in local contexts. These workshops are open to anyone who might be interested. Each session will be on a Friday from 12:00 to 1:00 CT and in the form of a Zoom workshop. There will be opportunities to engage with the ideas in small groups.
Sessions are free but you must register.
