Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday I will post something about grief. Sometimes it will be a reflection on an aspect of grief’s landscape. Now and then I will share from my own journey of grief, because in the sharing of our stories we find strength and build a community of people that support one another.

Visions of Heaven

Our ideas about heaven have changed over the centuries, mostly its location and what it physically looks like in a misty, vaporous kind of way.
The Jewish philosopher Maimonides took a different approach than the endless philosophical and theological discussions, and said that it's best not to speculate too much on the afterlife because we can’t prove what happens there. It is better, he said, to focus on taking care of people here.

Perhaps heaven is a great hall where singing goes on all the time. Evelyn would like that, if she could sing with her shoes slipped off.
