Let the dead bury the dead!!

This week I have gained new insights into Jesus' command the 'let the dead bury the dead'. My beloved auntie died on Sunday and I have been settling her affairs and arranging her funeral in the midst of ordinary life continuing. That's the point of Jesus' words I think, ordinary life has to continue even in one's grief as life goes on.

The Paschal Candle in the Church of the Good Shepherd is always lit at funerals as a sign of the hope of resurrection we share in Christ, it has brought me great comfort this week - a little beacon of hope in Murrayfield.
