We celebrated the death of my dear old Dad on June 1, three weeks short of turning 96. He lived a long and God-fearing life of humble witness to his Saviour. We had a funeral in which many stated their memories of this role model, not just in formal talk, but in the chatter that followed the “official” bit. The focus was on a living relationship – his relationship with God and relationship with others. Dead religion was not there.

I was trimming one of our little hedges the other day. It is a job that allows one to meditate a bit. It is a variegated (Buxus) box hedge standing about 30cm high and bounds a garden for annuals, where the driveway forks. The drive encircles the house.
