Reflecting on the painting and
Your Journey through life

  1. Death comes to us all and is a natural part of human experience. Some believe it is the end; for others, inspired by Christian faith, it is a new beginning. 
  2. Take a moment to imagine Jesus, a loved one, or someone else as the faceless figure in the painting – someone who has died. Who is in the painting for you? What does it make you think or feel?

Quotations to inspire you on
Your Journey

  1. ‘Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.’ Psalm 23
  2. ‘To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.’ Thomas Campbell
  3. ‘For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.’ Romans 8:18

Spiritual Wisdom to support you
on Your Journey

‘The process of dying is not unlike the process of being born. We are in the “womb” of this world, the limitations of time and space surrounding and hemming us in. Finally our journey through this world leads out and beyond and into a new and different future, about which there will be the same sense of curiosity, excitement and adventure as when we entered this life.’

David Hope, Former Archbishop of York.
