Death is a part of this life. Who can argue with that? But in our culture, we are experts at ignoring, denying and hushing that reality. Often, we avoid it as much as we can, until someone we know dies and we find ourselves in crisis, or in awkwardness as we try to comfort another.
How do we learn to breathe in and live out the revolutionary truth of the Gospel: “O death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your victory?” Death is swallowed up in victory through Jesus for the believer, yet suffering and grief are real. As Jesus said, let us, “Come and see.”
Join us for a unique opportunity to focus on death and dying, the defeat of our “last enemy,” and the assurance we have as we walk the path together as Christ followers, learning to weep with lifted hands.
