Event description

Description

The Wisdom writer laments that life is but the merest of breaths, a whisper spoken in the wind: here now, but gone forever in the next moment.


Yet, in our brief life we strive to interrupt an unendingly repetitious existence, long for permanence in an inescapably transient reality, and search for meaning in an empty world.


Death is the Great Disrupter.

It mocks our achievements, taunts our morals, and upsets our plans.

Pascal points out that since we “have not been able to cure death, misery, or ignorance, we have taken to not thinking about these things by filling our lives with other things.”

Distractions and diversions console us in the face of our fears and eventuality.


Far from despair, Ecclesiastes points out that “anyone who is among the living has hope” (9:4).

Death can teach us how to live!
