How a baby can help us to die (Luke 2:21-38).

There are millions of books on how to live, but very few on how to die. Lots of people want to teach us how to put death off (through healthy living), but few teach on how to face up to death. Even if we do summon up the courage to talk about death, who can we trust on the subject? There aren’t exactly many people who can speak with experience about how to die. Many can help us to live, but who can help us to die? In Luke 2:21-38, we meet a dying man, Simeon, who met a baby that helped him to die. What is it about the new life of baby Jesus that gives a new view of death?
