“A Philosophy of Suffering: From the Perspective of a Hospice Chaplain”
This Sunday, our guest speaker is Wes Fornes, a former evangelical pastor who is now a humanist hospice chaplain. Wes is the psychosocial director at a major hospice organization in the area and works everyday with death and dying. He oversees the psychosocial team of chaplains and social workers whose goal is to provide spiritual and emotional support to patients and their families. Wes often speaks in the Bay Area on issues concerning ethics, morality, grief and terror management theory. But the major focus for Wes is helping people understand meaning and purpose in life.
To make our world better, each of us must celebrate and share our unique gifts to discover new ways to nurture our planet. As curious, spiritually independent people, our Fellowship strives to provide an open and supportive environment to explore the creativity, strength and wisdom within the diverse experiences and aspirations of each of us. We discover joy and meaning in this type of religious community. And by working together, we strengthen our connections.
Join us at a Sunday morning service at 10:30. Our children’s spiritual development classes also begin at 10:30. We have classes for nursery, elementary and middle school ages.
