Whether you are a visitor or are joining us online or coming home to All Saints, we welcome you this morning. Although we gather to mourn our loss, we also gather to celebrate Pat’s new life in the household of our loving Father. The Burial Service is an Easter service and celebrates the victory of eternal life over death, won for us through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ, we commend to Almighty God our Sister, Lillie, and we commit her body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust. The Lord bless her and keep her, the Lord make his face to shine upon her and be gracious to her, the Lord lift up his countenance upon her and give her peace. Amen.
Tom was a remarkable man in many ways and certainly was a force for good and for growth at All Saints. We give thanks for a long life well lived.
“The golden evening brightens in the west. Soon, soon to faithful warriors cometh rest. Sweet is the calm of paradise the blessed. Alleluia, Alleluia!”
