While prolonging life and easing suffering on one hand, modern medicine at the same time often has contributed to a lower quality of life and increased suffering. Sharing eye-opening research and deeply touching stories from his own family and patients, Gawande examines medicine’s ultimate limitations and failures—in his own practices as well as others’—as life draws to a close. A practicing surgeon, Gawande is humble, honest, and humane as he argues convincingly that changes must be made if indeed the goal is not a good death, but a good life—all the way to the very end. Named a 2014 Best Book of the Year by The Washington Post, The New York Times Book Review, NPR, and Chicago Tribune. Carol Throntveit facilitates.

The Book(s) of Joy

                    WEST: Tues Feb 6 - Feb 27, 7-8:30pm, CFL Activity Room

Joy can seem elusive in the midst of life’s challenges.  Yet the wisdom and experience of spiritual leaders suggests that hardships cannot dampen our deep, abiding contentment.  On the contrary, hardships create opportunities to find joy in our God and in ourselves, and then spread that joy to others.  We will explore this idea by reading The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, which relates a week-long conversation between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and studying Paul’s letter to the Philippians, the New Testament’s book of joy.  Facilitated by Liz Otteson.
Register online by Feb 1.  Cost: $20 (includes book).
