Readings

Here you can listen to me reading “On The Death of the Beloved” by John O’Donohue, and a Bible reading from The first letter of St. Paul to the Corninthians.

The following is a poem “The Magic Door” written by my grandfather, William Oliphant for the funeral of a friend in the early 1990’s. It has been read at every family funeral since then.

 
Another favourite of mine to read at funerals is “Peace my Heart” by the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore
