In light of my symptoms and my recent posts, my ‘friend’ Simon had already gone to the trouble of formulating my eulogy: ‘Chris: A fine friend, bad personal hygiene, but a sharp, if heretical mind’.
At times like this you learn who your friends are, hey Si.
Yes, he was being a git, but it does make me think – what will be written on my tomb?
‘Chris: everything he touched went tits-up’.
‘Chris: Died of smoking, but he’s definitely not smoking anymore’.
‘Chris: He thought he was a theologian’
‘Chris: Died after being attacked by territorial male squirrels’
‘Chris: He meant well’
Anyway, before I get carried away, just one more ‘death quote’:
‘When we die, we do not die into nothingness; we die into God ... We are known by God already. In that lies our hope, for God’s knowing is forever’But do you know who said it?
If anyone guesses correctly, I’ll be seriously impressed. A clue: he is primarily a NT scholar.
