Life at the Edge of Death 9/14

Carly Yuenger

On today's show we confront our ultimate, collective foe--death. We ask, can a friend, also, be found in death?

Author Georgia Weithe discusses her book, Shining Moments, about the death of her father and the surprisingly positive changes it brought to her life.

How about you? Is death friend or foe in your mind? What is the cultural knowledge about death that you call on to help you? Do you wish you had more wisdom about death to draw from? Share your thoughts and stories by adding a comment below.

While I am sorry to hear about the guest's father passing. I am not convinced that human being can ever be truly "comfortable" with death via being more exposed to it.

I am curious if Ms. Weithe found any solace in the fact that Jesus overcame death itself. He now lives and offers eternal life to all.

Would Ms. Weithe find the beliefs above insulting?

Thank you.
