RADIO PROGRAM No. 69 - "Sorrow and mourning shall flee away"
HOST: What a wonderful promise we find in Isaiah (51:11), "They shall obtain gladness and joy: and sorrow and mourning shall flee away"! Few words in the Bible offer so much comfort to those who feel burdened with the problem of grief. And also there are great comfort and peace in the New Testament accounts of Jesus' words and works in which he showed that life continues after death.
This has been the theme of many a novel and play through the Years. Some twenty-five years ago it was movingly stated in the play "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder. At the beginning of the third act, the narrator expressed his view of death and of a life afterward in these touching words: "We all know that something is eternal.... There's something way down deep that's eternal about every human being." (Harper and Row, New York, Publishers, Inc. Copyright, 1957.)
Everyone wonders what's beyond this short human span of existence. We wonder about this especially when we've lost someone we love. How does Christian Science approach this?
