Healing grief: comfort in the Science of indestructible Life

When a friend, family member, or someone we admire dies, the sense of loss and sorrow can seem almost unbearable. The human heart cries out in anguish, because the parting seems so permanent, so irreversible. With every fiber of our being we want our loved one back. Death, however, seems to be the one event about which we can do little except mourn our loss.

But is this so? Are we wholly powerless and without comfort before what the Bible terms "the last enemy"? Do we have to plunge to the very depths of the black hole of despair and grief? Or does God, divine Love, provide a path of solace and hope through "the valley of the shadow of death"?
