Rev. Lee Hull Moses offered these words: “This place is sacred because it holds both life and death, both prayers and promise, both grief and hope. Mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, aunts and uncles, cousins and friends will gather here to remember the dear ones they loved. Prayers will be lifted here, tears will be shed here, lives will be celebrated here.
We are grateful for the hard work of many people who helped create this space, for all those who dreamed up this possibility and then worked hard to make it a reality. For the columbarium committee who worked out all the details, for Cliff Greaves and the property team who made the building happen, for the newly appointed columbarium sub-committee — Terry Simon, Eleanor Bray, and Drew Cannady – who will oversee operation of the columbarium from here. We give thanks for their faithfulness and their leadership.
We have created this holy space because we know that life is gift, and we know that death is but a part of life. This columbarium provides a place where we honor both death and life.
Here we are reminded that we are but dust, and to dust we will return. Here we are reminded that we are created by a God who loves us so fiercely that God will never let us go.”
