Memorial Service

This past weekend I attended a memorial service  at a Methodist church in the town where I grew up.   I had forgotten how beautiful the stained glass windows were in this church.  It was built in 1901  by a boat builder and has gorgeous woodworking on the ceiling and around the windows.

Although my pictures can't possibly do justice to these windows, I wanted to share them with you anyway.

This scripture was used as part of the lovely service.  


A Time for Everything
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.


  1. The scripture is one I know but sometimes forget.The circle of life, if you will. Turn, Turn, Turn...
