We're All Going to Die! Just Not Yet.

Recently, our village has been hit by a string of suicides.

I love life. I lead a happy, fulfilling, wonderful existence that is full of joy and pleasure. It is hard for me to comprehend the notion of purposefully offing myself. However, there was a time when I tried to do this very thing. You can read about it here.

I read somewhere that the American mortality rate is 100%. In other words, we're all eventually going to die. We should learn to get beyond our fear of that. On the other hand, we should not be too eager to embrace it.

For some however, death is all too welcome. Can life really get to be that bad, or is there something else going on?

Have you ever known anyone who has attempted suicide? Has your family been affected by suicide?

What do yo think causes someone to try it: hopelessness, fear, psychological problems?

unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.

Anything goes here. No matter where you are or who you are, we want to hear from you. Feel free to join in the conversation!

You can also join us in person, every Thursday night at Short's Brewing Company in Downtown Bellaire, MI.
