The Four Things That Matter Most

With Rev. Richard Carlini

Tuesdays - January 14 to February 18, 2020

7:00 - 9:00 pm


At the end of life, if not before, many people realize that relationships top the list of what’s really important.

According to Dr. Ira Byock, it comes down to practicing four phrases: “I forgive you,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you” and “I love you.” A physician specializing in end-of-life care, Dr. Byock observed countless situations that prompted his book: The Four Things That Matter Most: A Book about Living.

In this class you will participate in guided discussions about the four phrases that can lead to a meaningful life.

Your leader, Rev. Richard Carlini is a Unity minister as well as a registered nurse serving hospice patients. Currently he is senior minister at Transform Myself Inc., a Unity ministry. He also serves as chaplain of the West Central Unity Region and speaks at churches throughout the region.

Required: The Four Things That Matter Most, available at the Unity Bookstore or online.

Death Café: Feb. 18, 7:00 to 9:00 pm - Open to all, this final session by Rev. Rich is more casual. You’ll drink tea, eat cake, and participate in a guided discussion aimed at increasing your awareness of death to help you make the most of your (finite) life. There are no agendas, objectives, or themes; it is not a grief support or counseling session. You’ll walk away able to say: “I talked about death at the Death Café and it didn't kill me!”
