In Memoriam

In memoriam

In death, we say our ultimate human yes to our Creator. Trusting in God’s power to bring us to fullness of life, we see death as an act of worship: in dying, we proclaim God, God, and ourselves, creatures. Although in grief, the community gratefully affirms this, our final earthly proclamation of the good news.
