John 11: 1,3 “Now a man named Lazarus was sick…so the sisters sent word to Jesus, ‘Lord, the one You love is sick.’ “

Mary & Martha had been watching their beloved younger brother, Lazarus, slip from being sick, to gravely ill. So in their panic they sent a friend to find Jesus and tell Him to, “Come quickly and do something so Your friend & our brother won’t die!” Death & dying are hard things to deal with…and we’d rather not have anything to do with them…but in reality, we can’t avoid the unavoidable. They are both inevitable parts of life and just because we’re uncomfortable doesn’t mean we should elude that friend that just lost her husband, or dodge a funeral of a neighbor, or refuse to visit a Hospice patient. Death & dying are as natural and part of life as birth is, and should be treated with the same respect & dignity.
