Our funeral reading ideas are here to help you choose a loving way to say goodbye and to help personalise your ceremonies. Today's reading has been chosen by celebrant Fiona Mac an experienced storyteller that offers a creative, caring and thoughtful approach when it comes to leading your service.
This passage from Ann Lewin's Watching For The Kingfisher is in her classic style and draws from her love of birdwatching and nature.
Fiona shares; “I love this passage as it creates the journey of life, love, sustenance, resting, I have used it in woodland burial celebrations of life and it is always commented on as so fitting. It picks up the simplicity of nature and how we can live with it in harmony with love and peace."
Watching for the Kingfisher by Ann Lewin
........Let's rest and wander in green pastures
When we find them, make the space to let ourselves be loved;
Build up our strength and grow in confidence;
Drink living water springing in great fountains;
Feed on the bread of life which satisfies.
Then we shall have provision for the journey,
and at last arrive, not too unpractised
In the art of resting in his presence.
