How we can make time to die well comes in a pair of programs this week.
The film Tom Stoll: A Dying Man's Journey will be screened Jan. 19 at St. Luke's United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, 100 W. 86th St., at 7:30 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the Mankind Project of Indiana, of which Stoll was a member, the film and panel discussion that follows bring together the caregivers, colleagues and friends who were part of Stoll's journey.
Tuesdays with Morrie, the play about Brandeis University professor Schwartz's dignified path toward death, is on stage at Clowes Hall through Jan. 22.
The Rev. Tom Stoll served St. Vincent Hospital as a chaplain. Following diagnosis with cancer, in December 2000, Stoll determined that "the battle is for me to have as much time as I can, to die well." Just prior to his death on March 8, 2001, Stoll narrated the film.
Panelists include Ed Alley, Jef Bower, Larry Davis and Rick Spencer, and will be moderated by Ollie Howe.
