Occasions: Birthday

In fulfilment of his own purpose he gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would become a kind of first fruits of his creatures.
James 1:18 NRSV


God is the giver of all life. Each person is a unique, individual creation. There are no human clones or duplicate genetic copies. No one is exactly alike. As you remember the life of your beloved on this special day, celebrate the lasting personal and spiritual legacy of the one you grieve, the one who was like no other.


God, by the word of truth you give life to your children. I give you thanks for my loved one, a first fruit of your creation. Amen.


There is a purpose for every life born.
