A SERIES ON LIVING AND DYING IN FAITH
October 14 - November 4
"And when I come to die," the old spiritual sings, "Give me Jesus." Death makes its presence felt in each of our lives - we grieve the loss of family and friends, we care for loved ones near to death, and we make plans for what happens when we die. Thinking about death can be painful, frightening, and exhausting, and talking about it can be awkward and frustrating.
Yet it is the hope of our Christian faith that as real as death is, more real still is God's love for us, a love from which nothing - not even death - can separate us.
