This Sunday’s Service – A Personal and Theological Reflection on Death

March 19 Service at 10:30 AM

Rev. Art McDonald

In the long tradition of pulpit exchanges, Rev. Art McDonald, PhD, Minister at the First Universalist Church of Essex, will preach at Northshore Church and Rev. Julie Lombard will preach at the First Universalist Church of Essex.

Rev. McDonald will share some personal experiences of dealing with death, both as a hospital orderly (caregiver) while a seminary student as well as some more personal passings. He will tell about his brother who died in his mid fifties, and the many days he spent with his brother during the last weeks of his life. Art will draw on some theological insights, especially from the Buddhist and Christian wisdom traditions.
