Every Day is a Gift: After Worship Program
April 7, 2019 @ 11:20 am - 12:30 pm
Every Day is a Gift: After Worship Program on Sunday, April 7
Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery; today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present. This quote, attributed to Bill Keane, opens the preface to the book, Every Day is a Gift: A Couple’s Cancer Journey, written by John and Margaret McEwan. Through Margaret’s recollections, her email updates to families and friends, and John’s letters, the book chronicles the McEwan family’s five year faith-filled cancer journey and their experiences of living life fully with a metastatic cancer diagnosis.
Since John’s passing in 2013, Margaret has been telling their story, one that captures the essence of living well with cancer, the power of compassionate care, and the many facets of the bereavement experience.
Following the worship service on April 7, Margaret McEwan will talk about the book she co-wrote with her husband, and lead us in a conversation about living every day with strength and purpose, even when life may seem unfair and overwhelming.
