Transformation ~ Life & Death

look really closely, what do you see growing through from the dead leaves?

We are transforming ( changing) beings all the time, 
(a little like plants)!
Check out this life cycle of a plant.

How is OUR life/death cycle similar 
and different then a plant?

In this season of Lent, almost at Holy Week,
let us reflect on these words:
"To Live in Hearts the LOVE is not to Die"

What does it mean to you?
Bring your thoughts on Sunday to share!

Amazing Grace is a song that is played by many people who have lost 
someone close to them who have died.

How does this song make you feel?

How about this Prayer/poem by e.e. cummings 

Edward Estlin Cummings (October 14, 1894-September 3, 1962) better known as e.e. cummings, was raised Unitarian. How does this Prayer/Poem make you feel about life and death?

i thank You God for most this amazing. . .

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
