Interfaith Resources Meditations on the Life to Come
This collection of reassuring quotations helps people face the next stage in life's eternal journey. It includes short quotations from ten major religions plus words of wisdom from poets and philosophers throughout the ages and around the world.
Give this to anyone who is approaching the end of their earthly life, as well as any friends and relatives who are struggling to accept the coming loss.
These beautiful booklets were designed to be given away in hospital chapels, nursing homes, hospices, and funeral homes, but Baha'is will find a myriad ways to use them in their teaching work. They contain over 200 short prayers and quotations from ten different religions and dozens of philosophers, writers and poets, with an emphasis on the six major world religions, including Baha'i.
