I used a quote to end my sermon this past Sunday. I don’t know where it comes from, other that in my notes I have it as “Karen’s quotation”. It may be that my wife came across and it shared it with me at one point, or that someone named Karen told it to me and I scribbled it down but didn’t think to get more information about it.
At any rate, it was very well received at the church. If you know where it comes from, I’d love to know too.
We enter the world in tears. The world greets our entrance with joy. If we live our lives well, we leave this life with joy, and the world mourns our passing.
