Sacred Endings, Beginnings: Green Burials, Planting Trees Draw Congregation near to Natural Cycles of Life, Death

On March 29, we gathered for a graveside service to honor the life of a beloved Akron Mennonite Church member, Priscilla Ziegler. This would be unlike traditional interments.

We waited expectantly for immediate family and Priscilla’s shroud-wrapped body to arrive. Few of the 250 family and friends had experienced this kind of green burial and its intimacy. Upon arrival, guests were handed a short description of green burials, written by Priscilla’s husband, Don.
