Ashes to ashes, stardust to stardust
We scatter these remains to the earth
returning creation unto itself,
ashes to ashes, stardust to stardust.
We mark the cycle of life and death
as the journey of one among us
becomes memory in mind and heart.
The above scattering of ashes includes the commonly-known phrase "ashes to ashes" from the Book of Common Prayer, and was adapted to reflect Unitarian Universalist theology.
