Sunday I will be involved with my first funeral. The funeral is for a lady who is the grandma to a girl in the jr. high and the mother to one of the adults who helps with the youth ministry.
I have never done a funeral before. And I never met this lady. For the family, its one more thing in a string of events that has been extremely difficult the last few weeks. So, I’m praying God gives me words that will bring comfort – more importantly I’m praying God brings comfort (in a way only He can).
My “boss” took some time to help me think about what I might want to say and showed me some ideas. So I feel a little better now about the actual content of the message. And the service is just going to be graveside.
