Another funeral today. One of the reflections referred to this life closing, but not ending. Not only does this reflection remind me that Christians believe in eternal life. This life closes but that’s not the end of life.
Think of all the “closings” you've had, in your life: close of high school, close of a high school romance, close of college life, close of a career, close of friendships, etc. In each of these, life did not end. Life continue onto something different.
So it will be in death.
