Our Epistle lesson for this 3rd Sunday of the End Times is 1 Thessalonians 4:3-18.  Here, Paul tells us that as Christians, while we grieve the loss of our family and friends as others might, ours is a good grief!
Ours is a grief of hope; ours, a grief of understanding and knowledge of exactly what happens to us after we die. 
Paul goes on to explain the resurrection on the last day is the reason for this hope and that no one will be left behind!
