The idea for A 'Destination Funeral' -- Does 5,000 Miles and 10 Feet Under, “Get You Away From It All? ” – came from the ‘destination marriages’ which were becoming all... More > the rage among a certain 1 percent; an opportunity to keep out the rif-raf, to escape the crocodile tears? Of course what began as a meditation on death soon became one on life in our times, its challenges and rewards. I lived a period from 1947 – well into the 21 st Century, a period fraught with change and the challenges it brings. From black and white TV to HD hand-helds; from 'coming out' parties for debutantes to coming-out of the closet for one's gay marriage; from segregation to rap music and Nike endorsements, the changes have been well beyond any seers ability to imagine.

The names, except for celebrities whom I don’t think will mind, have been mostly left out.< Less

John Donne's Devotions By John Donne
eBook (ePub): $2.99

This volume of John Donne's writings begins with a biography of John Donne's life, as told by Donne's writer friend, Izaak Walton. Walton gives readers a close look at Donne's past, which was plagued... More > with the loss of many close family members. This biographical information helps readers to make better sense of the somber devotions contained in this volume. In his Devotions upon Emergent Occasions, Donne concentrates on the miserable condition of man and the inevitability of death. The devotions are all structured the same, each beginning with a meditation followed by an expostulation and a prayer. These devotions serve as a preview for Donne's "Death's Duel Sermon," written near his death in 1631 as his funeral sermon. While "Death's Duel" paints a grave picture of earthly life tormented by pain and death, it hopes for a bright future in God's love through Christ's resurrection and ascension. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
