Jetzt und in der Stunde

Aus der Kategorie: "Was verloren ginge":

"I once read an interview with Garrison Keillor in which he recounted going to a funeral. During the final prayers, the minister prayed for the deceased -- 'and for the next person here who is going to die.' He said that most of the guests were outraged and offended, but that he was moved and appreciative. He liked the fact that the Christian tradition does not candy coat things with Pepsi Generation promises of perpetual youth and vitality. The fact is, nobody's getting out of here alive. You are going to die, and your body is going to rot and be eaten by worms. Face it."
