In one of the world’s most famous poems, the Latin poet Catullus wrote, “Let us live and let us love, and let us value the tales of austere old men at a single halfpenny. Suns can set and then return again, but for us, when once our brief light sets, there is but one perpetual night through which we must sleep.”
Of course the Romans did not know of the resurrection and what Jesus promises us in the next life. What do you think about death? It will impact how you live life.
Hope to see you at the Fourth Annual Celebration of Freedom concert at 9 am on Sunday morning, July 3 at the Reynolds Plantation Pointe Pavilion. Everyone in the Lake Oconee area, both inside and outside Reynolds Plantation, is invited to come. Wishing you much love and much light.
