Believe it or not, spring will arrive and with spring comes a sense of renewal. Just in time for spring, as part of their Vitality initiative designed especially for seniors, Phelps Memorial Hospital Center will present a special four-part series on spirituality. Reverend Dr. Carole Johannsen, Phelps Chaplain, will lead the program, scheduled for Wednesdays from 9:00-10:30 am in the Phelps Auditorium, 701 North Broadway in Sleepy Hollow. It is free and all are welcome.

April 2 - The Grace of Aging: Growing Into Wisdom. Beyond physical and financial health, what are our spiritual (not religious) needs? How does wisdom grow out of seeking spiritual health?

April 9 - Forgiveness: The Struggle and the Relief. Forgiving others and forgiving oneself is not easy at any age, but as we grow older, the burden gets heavier and time gets shorter.

April 23 - YOUR Death, YOUR Way: Plan your funeral so it is YOUR funeral and not something generic. Families are so grateful when they know what their deceased loved one wanted, and we can do this creatively, and with good humor.

April 30 - Writing an Ethical Will: A letter written to your descendants that records your values and wishes, the knowledge of your experience, and the wisdom gained. It requires a view back at your life, then a look forward to your legacy.
