Vol. 5 No. 1 (2004): End of life
From the editorial:
At the center of Christian thinking about return to God stand the resurrection of Jesus and his teaching about life and death. The church’s real-life practices should be grounded in sound theology, while theology ought to be informed by what we have discerned through experience to be faithful practice. My hope is that this issue of Vision strikes an appropriate balance between this-worldly and other-worldly. May the articles provide insight and inspiration for those who minister to the dying and bereaved, may they nurture a hope in eternal life that inspires us to faithful living, and may they help prepare each of us for our own return to God.
