Beyong The Bucket List

Episode #337 | Added January 27, 2008

A new hit movie captures top spot at the box office and gets people asking, “What do you want to do before you kick the bucket?”
The Bucket List. It’s a new movie that brings together two Oscar-winning actors and tells a story of grand adventure and dreams fulfilled at the end of life’s journey.
Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman star in this film about two terminally ill men. They’re unlikely friends, who decide to make the most of the time they have left, by compiling a “bucket list.”
Today, we’ll dig deeper into some of the spiritual issues raised by this film.
We’ll meet a former minister, turned-leadership-consultant who interviewed hundreds of people to explore the most common paths to happiness. He’ll share lessons he learned while writing his book, The Five Secrets You Must Discover Before You Die.
We’ll speak with a Christian educator, to ask his thoughts on the importance of the journey. Whether God might have a “bucket list” for us, and what happens when we die.
And finally, we’ll share some intimate conversation with a man who really is in the final phase of his life’s story. He’ll share his thoughts on priorities during life’s closing chapter.
