Can You Do My Uncle's Service? : Funerals for Strangers
How do you put together a funeral for someone you barely know and still make it feel personal? The services included in this book are built around general themes of a person's life. Were they a mother, a gardener, an avid sports fan? These services give you a format which can easily be used as is or embellished with anecdotes from the person's life to create a more meaningful funeral service for the family. In addition, Rev Click has included funeral sermons which illustrate ways in which to speak of hope for those who don't fit the avid church-goer stereotype. This book will invite you to think creatively when seeking to bring words of comfort to those who are grieving.
