Death and Renewal

Death is just around the corner

In September we will talk about a subject that is uncomfortable and confronting. But it doesn't have to be. We will be opening the (crypt) door to the theme of Death, and hearing from a man all to familiar with the subject, (Dr) Philip Nitschke, who helped bring in the first voluntary euthanasia laws in the world.
