Last year was not a good year for the elderly relatives in my family, we seemed to  have lost more than usual in one year. I ended up having to go to a lot of funerals. That got me thinking about…Continue

"Obviously you will want to promote a "secular" workplace environment because this is the best way to level the playing field for those with disparate religious perspectives. It would be easy to relate this to politics or the other way…"

"Probably not be able to do the survey, but I can ask each person who attends. That might be an interesting way to begin the discussion. Chris"

Relegious Discussion

My workplace sponsors a monthly discussion group concerning subjects such as diversity in the workplace, different cultural experiences and personal interaction. I have been asked to facilitate the next meeting which will be devoted to relegion. We have a number of different nationalities at work, and I suspect a number of relegious also beside Christianity. I thought I would ask for your ideas as to how to frame the discussion, and what would you ask this diverse group. ChristopherSee More

"Thanks John it worked just as you said. Or else my prayers were fruitful but I doubt it. I prayed to delete them and poke in raspberries instead."

"My family knows to save money on the disposal issue. My plan is to squeeze all the goodness out of my life compatible with concern that others do the same. My senior years are devoted to grandfathering, wood carving, music, beer and fostering the…"

"You can get them really cheap on amazon or ebay. All kinds of designs and sizes. Our are simple stainless steel vials, each with a small accessory. Mine has a star. =)"

"Nothing wrong with the ash necklaces. If I can afford it when my favorite dog dies, I want her ashes spun into a glass pendant. For myself, cremation and my ashes scattered somewhere beautiful or in the pasture will work too if I'm still living…"

"I totally agree with you. Funerals are crazy expensive... who wants to pay $4K for a shiny box? But, in the US it doesn't really matter what you want for your own funeral or your desire to do or not do organ donation. You can certainly put it…"

Happy Birthday Chris. Have many more. Had to laugh at the photo. Somewhere, there is one of me wearing the same type of tie.
