Dear Beret

Though we could only be watching from a distance, it seems that you and Ron
embraced one of the great understandings of our faith and it has sustained
you both:


"If I live, then I live in the Lord.

If I die, I die in the Lord.

So whether I live or whether I die,

I am the Lord's"


It is good to be a part of a community that is present for us all.

Subject: [Springboard] Ron Griffith - Journey On


Dear friends and colleagues,

Ron died peacefully on Thursday, March 12 at 12:35 am. We sat with him
throughout his Big Journey.

Thank you for your care for us over the past nine months.
Grace and Peace,


On the day I die, when I'm being carried
toward the grave, don't weep. Don't say,

'He's gone!  He's gone."  Death has nothing
to do with going away. The sun sets and

the moon sets, but they're not gone.
Death is a coming together. The tomb

looks like a prison, but it's really
release from union. The human seed goes

down in the ground like a bucket into
the well where Joseph is. It grows and

comes up full of some unimagined beauty
Your mouth closes here and immediately

opens with a shout of joy there.
