† In Memoriam.

For the souls of the faithful departed especially,    The victims of London Bridge . . . .

together with all those we love and see no longer....

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
            and let light perpetual shine upon them.

Do Not Put

Do not put your trust in princes, in mortals, in whom there is no help. When their breath departs, they return to the earth; on that very day their plans perish.

Psalm 146:3-4 – NRSV
