Over the past few days I’ve been reflecting more and more on death. Often during Lent I try to reflect on sacrifice, Jesus’ death, and what it all means.
It’s not something we often talk about is it?
Death isn’t a dinner party topic. Sacrifice isn’t something you share at picnics. I think that’s because its heavy, real, and difficult. But just because something is difficult, doesn’t mean it should be avoided.
So for the next few weeks of Lent every now and then I’ll post some of my thoughts on death, sacrifice, and meaning found in the dark. It might be heavy, but by going through some heavy thinking and reflecting now, it can help later.
So to begin the process maybe take some time and reflect on these questions:
- What makes death so hard?
- What questions about death or sacrifice do you have?
- Why did Jesus have to die anyway?
Then over the next few weeks I’ll post some of my thoughts. But to start, what are your thoughts?

death is probably so difficult because of the loss of relationships with the people left behind
I think you’re right. That is the hardest part the loss. I think I’ll write a bit on that tomorrow
