Phil Spencer in the Feb. 19 Pastor’s Point makes an interesting point after much discussion about emergency planning on the ultimate emergency — one’s own death.
All too often in the world of humanism (defined as the person being the measure of all things), death becomes the enemy. The uncontrollable factor. This causes us much anxiety.
I must say that I am in full support of research and knowledge development related to the management of human illnesses.
However, death is not the enemy and is as much a part of life as is birth. In a spiritual sense, it is our spiritual relationship and walk with God that provides context and meaning to our lives. In one sense this is the ‘earthquake kit’ that is always developing as we journey through life, a spiritual ‘kit’ growing out of our walk with God.
