I Believe In Death


I believe in death I believe that it is part of life I believe that we are born to die, to die that we live more fully; born to die a little each day to selfishness, to pretence and to sin. I believe that every time we pass from one stage of life to another, something in us dies and something new is born. I believe we taste death in moments of loneliness, rejection, sorrow, disappointment and failure. I believe that we are dying before our time when we live in bitterness, in hatred and isolation. I believe that each day we are creating our own death by the way we live. For those with faith, death is not extinguishing the light; it is putting out the lamp because dawn has come.
