Life, loss, survival, memory and hope

For each of the words in the title a candle was lit tonight during the memorial service for the two Hungarian young people who tragically lost their lives a few weeks ago in an accident in the USA. It was a sober and intense experience. A few of the survivors of the accident were also present. Together we expressed our communal experience by sharing in their loss and sorrow. As a community we committed to carrying the memory of the two young people with us on our journey. It was good to pause and remember and reflect, for a time we stood still – because life can be so uncertain and incomprehensible, and that’s one of the reasons so we need to value the moments and the relationships dear to us.
