First Church in Marlborough to host Question 2 discussion Oct. 21

Marlborough – First Church in Marlborough is hosting an open discussion regarding Question 2 Sunday, Oct. 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. The forum will be held in the Church Hall at 37 High St., Marlborough.

Issues surrounding death and dying are not easy to engage in a death-denying culture. First Church in Marlborough Congregational UCC is dedicated to having an open forum on the subject, where people from Marlborough and other towns can gather and be informed. The forum will have opponents, proponents, and professionals from the medical, hospice and palliative care fields present to answer any questions you might have.

“While our attention is drawn to the presidential elections and to the contested senate, the question raised by Question 2 is of fundamental importance,” said Pastor Kazimierz (Kaz) Bem. “It touches on patient-doctor relations, on the question of suffering, and on profound ethical dilemmas. For Christians, it also raises the question of to whom do we belong, and to whom do we witness? I am hoping the Open Forum at First Church in Marlborough might be an opportunity for people to come, learn, and be informed about this serious matter.”
