Why are some of the most basic facts of life so hard to talk about? Sex, money…and death. How could talking more openly about dying actually be life-giving? Does God bring something to the conversation beyond shallow platitudes? Whether it’s with our parents, our doctors, our kids, our friends….conversations about aging, disease and death come to us. Melissa Lock and friends will help us open up to these conversations that matter and see how taking a more honest look at dying gives glimpses of life at its fullest.
In Chris Lillehei's message in our Conversations that Matter, he interviewed Kari Bullard who started becoming part of the Jacob's Well community in March. This is her part of the larger message from that day. Hear Kari speak why Jacob's Well matters.
July 17 – Sending an Invitation by Chris Lillehei
We need to talk… We all know that stress can kill us. But what if we have gotten stress all wrong? What if avoiding stress is actually more dangerous to our health and happiness than embracing stress? In this conversation we’ll talk about how modern science and ancient wisdom pretty much see eye-to-eye on the hidden–and too often neglected–power of stress. Check out this great talk from Jacob's Well native and local thought leader Nick Tasler.
