Living With The Mystery Of Our Death
Religious leaders get to oversee some of life’s happiest moments, but they’ve also seen enough death to last a lifetime.
They officiate funerals, bless graves, and provide comfort to those who are suffering loss. So it makes sense that we expect them to have some kind of wisdom about death.
But how do their experiences influence their views of their own mortality?
Today we’ll talk with philosopher Shelly Kagan and pastoral care professor Kristen Leslie about the mystery of death.
We also have Episcopal priest and theologian Danielle Tumminio in the studio with us to share the stories of how two priests and a rabbi understand their own mortality.
