Home-cooked effort turns into large event for pregnancy services

Every March, Rose and Bernie Wilson cook up a big brunch.
Usually the meal, for women only and in recent years numbering about 120 guests, has a St. Patrick’s theme: maybe some Irish stew in a bread bowl or a shepherd’s pie, maybe a soup with corned beef. Sometimes the foods are just green.

Moral issues make some advance directives better than others

How can I ensure my wishes concerning medical treatment will be honored if I’m unable to speak for myself, especially if I’m seriously ill or approaching death? Can I be confident those choices will reflect God’s will for me? And how can I make sure all relevant information is considered when those decisions are made?
