A few years ago our family went through a rough spot when several of my relatives died in quick succession. Some time later I put together a Bible study that was more my notes from having gone through that than anything else, a Bible study more geared towards giving spiritual nourishment than towards giving information.
So the long story short is that the next series on this blog will be a little unusual: spiritual resources for the terminally ill and their caregivers.
I'll post the table of contents here and then update it with links as the posts are published:
Contents: Spiritual resources for the terminally ill and their caregivers
Part 1: How Jesus' death shows us what to expect
Many people think it is "Christian" never to admit to fear (especially desperate or wild fear), bitterness, weakness and so forth. Looking at Christ helps cure us of unreasonable expectations.
- Let this cup pass from me
- Father, forgive them
- Woman, here is your son
- My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?
- I am thirsty
- It is finished.
Part 2: How Jesus' life anchors our hope
Christ gave more than just instruction. He gave us hope.
