October 9, 2018 – Faith & Life: The Quantity and Quality of Life Question
Season 11, Episode 41
Would you rather have a long life…. or a good life? Or are you like us – you want both? On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and the question as to which is more important, the quantity, or the quality of one’s life. Some people say they want to live forever. Others renounce that idea as if it sounds like some form of torture. But also, in this question of how long one wants to live is the issue of the quality of life. Do the three Abrahamic faith traditions have anything to say about this idea of what is sometimes considered to be a tension between the quantity or length of one’s life and the quality or meaningfulness of one’s life? Today we’ll spend some time talking about those questions – does faith gives us any clues in regard to how we might answer these questions? Our conversation about life – quantity or quality? Perhaps it’s not a simple either or question – we’ll talk about it – that’s on this Friends Talking Faith.
