Why Bother? Session Two
Making Meaning Out of Death
How to Get Started
One of life’s most sensitive topics is death, so we’ve asked Jenna Moerk, a mortician, to help us understand how religion improves our relationship with death. But Jenna doesn’t work on the cosmic questions. Instead, we’re going to talk about the gritty details of death and mourning. What do we do with the body; how do we remember the dead?
And most of all, why is all this so important to us?
Why does how we treat the dead reflect on the values of the living?
