This month we are reading and discussing Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander: “Near-death experiences, or NDEs, are controversial. Thousands of people have had them, but many in the scientific community have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those people. Alexander’s recovery from an extremely rare illness is by all accounts a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met the Divine source of the universe itself. This story sounds like the wild and wonderful imaginings of a skilled fantasy writer. But it is not fantasy. Before Alexander underwent his journey, he could not reconcile his knowledge of neuroscience with any belief in heaven, God, or the soul. That difficulty with belief created an empty space that no professional triumph could erase. Today he is a doctor who believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition.” Bring a sack lunch and join us for an engaging discussion of this book.

Women Connected General Meeting
Saturday | September 30th | 10:00 am | McAulay Hall
Women Connected invites all women at FPCO to our General Meeting. The program, Taking Care, will be presented by our own Amy Wilson. Amy’s years as a health care professional and a personal caregiver have taught her the importance of taking care of others, as well as yourself. She knows the ins and outs of both the business and legal end of “taking care” and will tell us, so we can be ready with the right documents, when the “what if…” happens. She’ll share some tips and techniques to make your home a healthier place, too. Please join us for fellowship and for this important presentation. Bring a friend!
