Death is a difficult topic. Most look upon it with fear, while others try to ignore it altogether. But one thing is certain … it’s been on people’s minds more than usual lately.
When Andy McQuitty received his cancer diagnosis in 2009, it felt more like a death sentence. Not only did he have cancer, but he was very likely going to die from that cancer. This set him on an intense journey through the valley of the shadow of death, and he came out on the other side with a new perspective on how Christians can live with purpose—even as we approach life’s final chapter. Hear his profound insights and reflections when you listen to today’s episode.
At 2:58 PM on July 14, 2009, Andy McQuitty officially entered the valley of the shadow of death with these words from his doctor, “Andy, you have a massive tumor that has broken through the wall of your colon. It’s cancer. It’s serious. Get in here now.” In the video below, he reads one of his journal entries included in his book Notes From the Valley: A Spiritual Travelogue Through Cancer.
