Write Your Own Funeral!

Most of us have thought about our own death, perhaps how we would the funeral to go. But how many of us have taken the time, thought, and prayer to write out the order of service for our own funeral? Imagine the stress on your family during the hours after your death - who would want to put an additional burden on them? 

Even church pastors need assistance - because deaths are mostly unplanned and the family of the deceased is left with telling the pastor what should happen. He can take some of the load, but likely does not know the person well enough nor have the time to do it all himself.

So you should write up your own funeral. What hymns, what Scripture, what prayers? Let me know what you think. I may post my funeral outline later. Let all things be done for the glory of God in Christ - the only Redeemer and possible salvation for anyone.
