"From life's first cry to final breath"

This week in DCM brought us a stark encounter with the reality of death and the hope of resurrection. On Monday we watched the wrenching Frontline documentary on Thomas Lynch's funeral home, followed by two segments of N.T. Wright's stirring DVD on the resurrection.

On Tuesday, we visited a local cemetery and held a "Service of Reaffirmation of Resurrection Hope" in the chapel there. These words from "In Christ Alone" took on new meaning as we sang them there:

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no human plan,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.
