Excerpt from Fahrenheit 451

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said.
A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made.
Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die,
and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. It doesn’t matter what you do,
he said, so as long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into
something that’s like you after you take your hands away.”

Christian Funeral Quotes

For our Christian readers, we have assembled a collection of funeral quotes from the Bible, and other writers, to bring you strength and comfort.

Promise of Salvation

Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people;
and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin,
but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

Hebrews 9: 27, 28

Eternal Life

Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death,
so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.

For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus
those who have fallen asleep in him.

According to the Lord’s word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord,
will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep.

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command,
with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And so we will be with the Lord forever.

Therefore encourage one another with these words.

I Thessalonians 4: 13-18

~

He fulfills the desires of those who fear him;
    he hears their cry and saves them.

Death is Peaceful

is like passing quietly through the gate

wooden gate in a clearing.
Neither pain, nor floods of light, nor great voices,
but just the silent crossing of a meadow.
