“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.” -Steve Jobs (2005 Stanford Commencement Address)
Thank you, Mr. Jobs for reminding us of that…and for developing so many of the tools that we use that make an all-volunteer, grass-roots church possible. Thanks also for reminding us that life is short…but that one man, completely focused and devoted to his work…can change the world.
