What does it mean to live our lives with the end in mind – and what does cleaning have to do with it? This Sunday, we will use the book The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson to explore themes of life and legacy through this method of “decluttering.” Together we will reflect on what it means to let go of what no longer serves us: living our own lives to the fullest and keeping the next generation in mind.
