McKenzie and the Lonely People

Next Step #660: Fr. McKenzie wipes his hands at the grave and who was saved? A look at funeral, death and ultimately life. Nothing morbid about this discussion, it’s about a healthy look (yes with tears!) at death. Sending the soul back to its maker with prayers and reflections – it’s an Armodox approach. No touching during the pandemic: And now the Lonely People. Entitlement and Salvation. Challenger Disaster, 35 years ago. The gen-gen generation.

Archiving Mortality

Next Step #429: Archiving: whether via a photograph, a video, a digital page – these attempts at immortality stretch reality – from augmented to virtual, to distorted to alternate, a look at the eternal yearnings of the soul. Naming your kid “Resurrection”? Sounds crazy? As crazy as driving a Karmann Ghia? Here’s some end-of-summer thoughts on life, immortality and living for the day. Also, human life-forms without the soul, cf. buildings without communities.
