“For none of us has life in himself, and none becomes his own master when he dies”
These words begin the culminating verse of the opening sentences from the Burial Service in the Book of Common Prayer. As we are to love God with all of our heart and soul and mind and strength, so God keeps us.
The Memorial Garden is an area set aside as a testament to the promises of God by which we live. It has been designed to be a place of prayer and reflection, where individuals may find solace and may cherish the lives of others.
