MILC hosted Rev. John Buttars on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 at St. Peter’s United Church in Sudbury.
Weaving his own encounters with the reality of death with insights from other thinkers, Buttars encourage the audience to confront a certainty which is challenging for all to face.
“Life is an unbelievable gift with amazing abundance . . . May- be those who live out of abundance can more easily accept that difficulties, loss and death are simply parts of life.”
Keenly interested in the issues of euthanasia and assisted suicide, Buttars gave insight into the two polarities of “prolonging suffering or shortening valued life”.
