What is life? Glen Scrivener

We’re thrilled to welcome Glen Scrivener to King’s Arms, a superb communicator or the powerful message of the gospel and Director of speaklife.org.uk, as he explores the question ‘What is life?’. A superb event to invite guests to join us for their first glimpse of church.
What is life, a tragedy or a comedy? This isn't a question of whether life is hilarious (mostly it's not). It's about whether life is hopeful. A tragedy has joy but it ends in pain — it's shaped like a frown: up and then down. A comedy has pain but it ends in joy — it's shaped like a smile: down and then up. So, what is life, tragedy or comedy?
The world tells us that life is a tragedy. It's full of fun but it ends in the pit. Is there any hope? Easter tells you of a divine comedy. It's the story of the Author entering our great drama, plunging down to the pit and rising up to joy. Could that story be true? Might there be someone who has taken our tragedy to give us his comedy?
