Evensong ~ Befriending the end of the Journey ~  November 13, 7:15
 
“Death is our friend precisely because it brings us into absolute and passionate presence
 with all that is here, that is natural, that is love.” Rilke
We gather to contemplate befriending death in song, silence and in story, 
with the reading of an uncommonly tender, wonderfully warm story
 written for children, a meditation on the cycle of life. 
 
“Each day, we wake slightly altered, and the person we were yesterday is dead. 
So why, one could say, be afraid of death, when death comes all the time?” John Updike
“And all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.” Julian of Norwich
