Spirituality of Death

What do the symptoms manifested by a person bereaved by an unjust and violent death mean?  The prevailing understanding is dictated by the scientific worldview of medicine or the social science worldview of psychology.  But what of theology and Christian faith.  How are we to speak of trauma, suffering and death?  In the ‘spirituality of death’ project John Bottomley seeks to explore these questions, beginning with his reflection on the truth-speaking of  widows bereaved by their husband’s work related death.  You are invited to send your comments to johnbottomley@netspace.net.au
