Airs: August 28 - September 1
Death focuses our minds. In light of eternity, the lights of this world lose their lustre. Few think about possessions owned and monies earned. Instead, our thoughts turn to people loved—and who loved in return; to joys and sorrows, victories and defeats. Sadly, some die with resentments for harms done and regrets for dreams unfulfilled. These people die without dignity, for they die without grace. A grace-filled death only comes about after a grace-filled life. Like few others, Paul lived with grace and died with grace—grace to the very end.
