  • Life everlasting

    Re: Dying well (Letters, Feb. 2015, p. 4). Could somebody, a fellow Christian, explain to me what “dying well” is?  Is it possible that a Christian could even be thinking of assisted suicide, or euthanasia, or whatever the euphemism is, when we, Sunday after Sunday, offer…

    Beyond the bunting: Marriages get better with time
