Welcome and Opening Prayer from Minister Hilary Mcclintock
When I Die – Jalaluddin Rumi read by Khaled Khawaja
When my coffin is being taken out
you must never think I am missing this world
don’t shed any tears don’t lament or feel sorry I’m not falling into a monster’s abyss
when you see my corpse is being carried don’t cry for my leaving I’m not leaving I’m arriving at eternal love
when you leave me in the grave don’t say goodbye remember a grave is only a curtain for the paradise behind
you’ll only see me descending into a grave now watch me rise how can there be an end when the sun sets or the moon goes down
it looks like the end it seems like a sunset
but in reality it is a dawn when the grave locks you up that is when your soul is freed
Have you ever seen a seed fallen to earth
not rise with a new life why should you doubt the rise of a seed named human
have you ever seen a bucket lowered into a well coming back empty why lament for a soul when it can come back like Joseph from the well
when for the last time you close your mouth your words and soul will belong to the world of no place no time
