In fiction, a zombie is an undead being created by the re-animation of a human corpse. These soulless creatures prowl here and there (usually at night) seeking to infect others with zombie virus, and ultimately take over our world, as described in various stories as "I am Legend" and "Night of the Living Dead." Often these stories threaten or culminate in some sort of zombie apocalypse- where these undead beings risk ending or irreparably changing life as we know it. While zombies themselves are creatures of fantasy, the reality is that fear of an apocalypse goes far beyond fictional stories. Christian faith in the resurrection of Jesus (which is different than re-animation!) brings a unique perspective to discussions about "the end." Join Evergreen CSRD Chaplain Mike Landry for a lively discussion of zombies, Jesus, C.S.
