death, life


And so I found myself at Luther’s memorial the other day. Yet another person who has passed away to death from living here on planet earth. And as I looked up to behold the eulogy, there he was, a bowl of dust, cremated, burned to ashes. Is this what life amounts to in the end sometimes, a bowl of dust to be scattered somewhere? Cremation, what’s the meaning of that word. Does Wikipedia, that internet bible dictionary have an entry for that word, as I gather it has something to do with death. Is there some sort of verse in the bible about this ashes to ashes, dust to dust thing about life and death? What’s the purpose of life to wind up cremated in an urn in a bowl of dust, next to a vase of flowers and a photo. Is cremation some sort of second death? What’s the purpose of being born if one is going to wind up as a bowl of dust, and what’s the meaning of life with meaning, to hear the angels of death. And I have heard it said that the only thing constant in life is change.
