This Friday, February 17th, is the memorial service for Dalene Breytenbach. She was the liaison officer of The Word for the World.
We mourn her passing, but rejoice in the fact that we know she is with the Lord. At the same time, we celebrate her life, which was a demonstration of the grace and power of God. If we could speak to her now, we would love to say, “Rest well, comrade in the service of the Word!”
Dalene requested the following poem to be read at her funeral.
And when I stamped my feet on the grave
the thumping soon became a dance
and I felt the sadness and the joy
well up in my heart
that life and death
are so close
and in that space
and the tears that ran down my face
released me to the great mystery of it all.
