The "Walk to Jerusalem " continues as walkers and other exercise minded folks log their miles and times to make it (theoretically) from Colorado Springs to Jerusalem. (Of course you know we will walk on water!!--Well, we plan to cover the same distance anyway.) If you want to add your times and/or mileage to the totals, pick up a form from the Health and Wellness Bulletin Board in the west hallway and add your efforts to make sure we make it to Jerusalem!
One of the documents that a person should create in order to deal with unexpected happenings is the Durable Power of Attorney. In case you ever become mentally incapacitated, you will need a "power of attorney" for medical care and finances. The Durable Power of Attorney simply means that that you can designate a trusted person to handle matters if you should become unable to make your own medical and financial decisions.
On April 23rd, the Health and Wellness committee is sponsoring information regarding the Medical Durable and Financial Powers of Attorney. Hank Eastlund, an attorney serving Colorado Springs in Estate Planning, Estate Litigation and Probate, will provide a briefing and discussion. The gathering will take place in the Fellowship Hall following the second service. Come, enjoy a light lunch, and learn how to control one of the important decisions in your life.
