Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity & Soul
…Monday, November 6th at 7 pm
The Jubilee! Community Life Team is co-sponsoring Stephen Jenkinson’s talk about grief and dying. Dying could be and must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what you’ve learned by living. It’s a moral obligation to die well. If you love somebody, if you care about the world that’s to come after you, if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you’ve seen, you’ve got to die wise. The event will be held at the Masonic Temple in downtown Asheville.  Tickets are available at the door for $30 per person: $22.50 if you are a student or senior.
