Being with dying …

In being with dying, we arrive at a natural crucible of what it means to love and be loved. And we can ask ourselves this: Knowing that death is inevitable, what is most precious today? —Roshi Joan Halifax in Interview with Wild River Review

Everyday the folks at Gratefulness.org share a Word for the Day. Today’s word spoke to me as a person who has been there and as a pastor who has walked with those taking the last steps of  this part of  their journey. I believe many of you will understand these words, having shared similar experiences. ~dan
