THIS WEEK’S VIDEO TOP FIVE FROM REV. GINNY
An acceptance that death is the natural and sacred end of life has emerged among the baby boom generation that insisted on natural childbirth. Over the past almost 30 years, a movement has arisen to empower individuals to return death care to the family and community. Home care of the body, a home vigil or funeral, not being embalmed, and ‘green’ burial are options that require legal and practical before-death preparation. A number of groups have formed to support natural death care, such as this one in Greensboro https://vimeo.com/220346382, and traditional funeral homes have begun to provide options and services for people in the natural death care movement.
I am interested in partnering with others to foster and support natural death care in Winston-Salem. If you are interested or have questions, contact me (Sarah Putnam ) at email@example.com
Education for Ministry (EfM is a small group program administered by the University of the South (Sewanee). Through study, prayer and reflection EfM helps participants move toward a new understanding of the fullness of God’s kingdom as they better apprehend the connections between their faith and their lives. EfM is a four-year program that participants commit to one year at a time.
I am trying to find enough participants (six) to form a new evening EfM class starting at St. Anne’s in mid-September. Please join me on June 30 to learn more about EfM and ask any questions you have about the program. There will also be other informational sessions about EfM in July and August as we work to form a class. Experienced EfM participants are also invited to join us to provide their perspectives on the class to prospective members.
I have been a mentor/EfM class administrator for 20 years. Contact information: firstname.lastname@example.org, 336-996-1614 (home), 336-624-6453 (cell).
St. Anne’s BOOK GROUP will be taking a break over the summer. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 10th at 6:00 pm with the location to be determined. We will be discussing “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens. If you would like more information, please contact Karin Hileman.

This is year 16th for the team, led again by Captain Stuart Winikoff. The team currently has 3 riders and welcomes more. Riders pay a registration fee and commit to a $300 fund raising minimum. Team Irene has already received $2,600 in team donations which will be split evenly between team members.
