O Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol, restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.

— Psalm 30:3

"What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love."

— Dostoevsky

“What is hell? Hell is oneself. Hell is alone, the other figures in it merely projections. There is nothing to escape from and nothing to escape to. One is always alone.”

— T.S. Eliot

Throughout history, authors have offered multiple descriptions of the afterlife: Everything from eternal punishment for those who lived a bad life or do not believe correctly to loss, loneliness, and even the inability to love. These ideas often inform the way we act in the world; motivation to avoid eternal punishment or loss in the here and now. These differing ideas so powerfully shape our action and imagination we wanted to create a space for you to share your own stories, experiences and ideas. Join us for an open table discussion with New Testament scholar Daniel Kirk over some jambalaya and gumbo. Join us for Creole and Sheol!
