Reclaiming Funerals as Christian Worship

While funerals have often been seen as family affairs or private activities, the fact is that death impacts entire communities: both the faith community and the community at large.

Aspects of funeral planning for pastors and worship leaders will be considered with the focus on the funeral (or memorial) service as worship. We will also consider the role of the church and worship planners in community-wide memorial services.

Presented at the 2008 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
