Nobody likes to talk about death, but it's one of only a handful experiences that touch everyone [you know the old saying about death and taxes].  The trouble is, there are so many ways to avoid really dealing with matters of our own mortality.  We can ignore and deny it.  We can delay and procrastinate.  We can fill the uncomfortable silences with bad theology about God "needing another angel."  Or... we can be brave and talk about things that may seem scary, only to find our courage rising the more we are able to talk about them.  In this first episode of a brand-new series, pastors Erica and Steve [to be joined again by Pastor Sarah in our next conversation] set the table for how we talk about death and dying, and all the ways it affects our lives now, and we invite you to join us and listen in.  Like the old adage of Mister Rogers reminds us, things that are mentionable become manageable, so if we can talk together about facing our our finitude then we can deal with it in a way that gives hope and grants us peace.
