Thoughts Easter 2024 – DYING AND LIVING
Birth is followed by life.
Death is followed by
If the supernatural consolation is missing, what remains?
God is dead.
Christian churches become emptier and emptier.
But I am left with memory and gratitude.
Both can transcend space and time.
True memory is more than just “thinking about”
… our parents and grandparents and friends as we have experienced them.
Photos help.
Images and memories visualise the person who was and is no longer with us.
They make him or her present.
His or her face, his or her voice, his or her presence.
That is life after death.
A consolation, after all, because it is not a betrayal.
