Voices: Better Things Ahead

In light of the grief this church is currently experiencing both individually and collectively, I wanted to share the following quote from C. S. Lewis in a letter he wrote to a woman facing death in 1963.

“There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.” — C. S. Lewis [1]

One of the great sure and certain hopes of Christianity is that those we have lost to death have gone on to better things.
