Room 6060 is a powerful, tender, tearful journey. In many ways, it’s an Easter story: a reflection of and only possible through that first Easter Story.
We will all walk the path that leads beyond the sojourn we know here. Through doors that may seem dark, this path leads to a new home, much better than the one we left. Jesus called it, “entering life.”
Room 6060 tells the story of Joyce Jefferson’s final days on this inevitable path, and of her entering that life her Savior promised. But this is more the story of Jon and his family, who knew Joyce as Nanny, and shared her final days here with her. It’s a story of hospitals, family, grief, waiting, crying, singing, and coming to terms with losing someone you love to eternity.
For those who share the promise of eternal life, the process of losing a loved one to that eternal life involves grief, the treasure of reliving precious memories, the heartache of goodbyes, and ultimately, the joy of knowing that a loved one is now in paradise and that there will, one day, be a reunion.
Room 6060 also includes practical words of comfort and hope from mental health and ministry leaders for those of us who remain and must face our grief, our sorrow, or our doubt.
Room 6060 is a poetic and touching story that all of us, in some way, will experience. It’s also a path for us to follow when that time comes.
