Sunday, January 13, 2019 Showing of film: Griefwalker (after service)

Griefwalker is a National Film Board of Candada feature documentary film, directed by Tim Wilson. It is a lyrical, poetic portrait of Stephen Jenkinson's work with dying people. Filmed over a twelve year period, Griefwalker shows Jenkinson in teaching sessions with doctors and nurses, in counselling sessions with dying people and their families, and in meditative and often frank exchanges with the film's directors while paddling a birch bark canoe about the orgins and consequences of his ideas for how we live and die.

The film runs just over an hour and afterward we'll ave time for discussion of our responses and reactions.
