Tree or Shrub Planting and Dedication

Surrounded by the ever-present mystery we name God,
we gather to honour the life and hope and faithfulness
of NNN
We remember our life and relationship with N,
and dedicate this rose bush to his/her memory.
In remembering, telling and retelling his/her story,
we honour the life he/she continues to give to us.
This rose bush is a sign of remembrance,
but we dedicate it also as a sign of hope.
Let its growth be a sign of God’s grace to us. Amen
(Adapted from work by the Rev. Bruce Prewer)
