    •Living, Dying and the Power of Presence: We are pleased to announce the upcoming Inspiring Talk and Film Presentation by: Kevin Dunn International Filmmaker & Pro-life Speaker, Director of Fatal Flaws: Legalizing Assisted Death, The Euthanasia Deception & The Vanier Way with Jean Vanier. Are assisted dying laws leading society down a dangerous path? For the past three years, award winning filmmaker Kevin Dunn has travelled to four countries to capture powerful testimonials from those most affected by ‘assisted dying’ laws: the elderly and those who live with disabilities or mental illness. Kevin’s talk, which includes scenes from his films, underscores the need for each of us to become a ‘prophet of hope’ in the lives of those around us. Kevin is currently travelling throughout the world on his “Prophets of Hope Tour”, giving two different talks: “Living, Dying and the Power of Presence” and “The Vanier Way” (featuring Jean Vanier). Talks include clips from his recent films, “Fatal Flaws: Legalizing Assisted Death”; “The Euthanasia Deception” and “The Vanier Way”. These, along with Kevin’s powerful testimony as husband and father of six make for a truly uplifting and unforgettable experience. Are you ready to become a prophet of hope? Join us on June 17, 2019 at the RCTC Heintz Center Commons, 1926 Collegeview Rd E, Rochester, MN 55904. The evening is free of charge however a good will offering will be gratefully accepted.
