Discuss the inevitable experience of death.

The following 4-session course will help you and your group think more about the inevitable experience we'll all face in numerous ways—death. You'll be challenged to think about important, but often overlooked, questions like: How can we improve our ministry to the dying? What do you think it was like for the friends of Jesus between his death and resurrection? When do you think it's appropriate to contact someone after that person has lost a loved one? If after death, we are already in the joy of God's presence, what exactly do we gain from a bodily resurrection?
