Sunday Service: How We Say Goodbye: Thoughts on Death and Dying

Daniel Owens is our guest speaker. He is a member of RVUUF and is a Chaplain at Providence Hospital in Medford.

“The beauty and preciousness of life is intimately linked with its fragility and mortality. We can experience that every day — when we take a flower in our hands, when we see a butterfly dance in the air, when we caress a little baby. Fragility and giftedness are both there and our joy is connected with both.” -Henri Nouwen

“Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet. Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs. Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night. Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment,
and say your last words in silence. I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light your way.”
– a Poem by Rabindranath Tagore
