Messages for Memorials and Graveside Grief
As a ministerial student starting a church in a retirement village, I needed a book like this one, with short sermons for memorials and funerals, but had trouble finding one. As I neared my own retirement, I felt led to start compiling the messages I'd developed over the years. They are meant to serve the needs of young preachers and lay speakers at such services. The last one in the book was written for the funeral of my own cousin, just a bit younger than myself. I hope you'll find them a useful blessing in your ministry to the bereaved.
