“We Know How This Ends”

May 2, 2017 @ 6:00 pm7:00 pm

Our Lady of Peace Book Group

This is an “open” book group. No commitment is required. Come to only select meetings or all meetings, depending on your interests and availability. Everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t done the readings

Our next book is   We Know How This Ends: Living while Dying by Bruce H. Kramer, Cathy Wurzer (memoir).  When death is a constant companion, sitting too closely beside you at the dinner table, coloring your thoughts and feelings and words, your outlook on life is utterly transformed.

The perspective and insights offered in We Know How This Ends reveal this daily reality and inspire a way forward for anyone who has suffered major loss and for anyone who surely will. Rather than wallowing in sadness and bitterness, anger and denial, Kramer accepted the crushing diagnosis. His decision was the foundation for profound, personal reflection and growth, even as his body weakened, and inspired Kramer to share and teach the lessons he was learning from ALS about how to live as fully as possible, even in the midst of devastating grief.  It is available at Amazon  and Barnes & Noble in both paper and electronic form.

Each meeting will consist of a brief introduction of the attendees, the topic and process for the evening, a circular response to the readings (What struck you the most, what relevance does it have for you, and/or what questions did it raise?), an open discussion time, a closing, and a brief time for tea and social interaction.
