morning with an American documentary film-maker I recently worked with. She expressed sadness that my life’s work seems to have met defeat. I appreciate her concern for me: But I would rather lose for something that is right than win for something that is wrong. Remember, don’t let temporal defeats cloud your eternal perspective.
But it’s also a splendid opportunity for Christian witness in hope and life not death and despair. We now have an opportunity to establish a network of free-standing Christian hospices across the nation that always affirm life (even at its end) in an environment of love. This is when Christians can really show that the living Christ is real, that we know Him and our relationship with Him means so much more that what any court of legislature decrees -- if it openly demands we compromise or abandon the faith and relationship we have in Christ.
