9781508902584: Saints I Have Known and Buried: Tributes That Help Define Their Legacy and Sermons for Their More Difficult Funerals

Funerals can often be a time of both great sadness and deep introspection. As a result, finding the right things to say and do can be a challenge even for someone officiating a funeral. Unfortunately, poor theology and a lack of expertise can sometimes create deeper sadness, resentment, and even diminish faith if the memorial is not handled properly and delicately.

In Saints I Have Known and Buried, author Rev. Christopher Miller offers a set of resources for overcoming these negative consequences by creating Tributes for the deceased that recognize and focus on the legacies the dear departed forged—in words and deeds—over their lifetime.

Intended to help identify, clarify, and honor a person’s life, this book includes sample Tributes written by the author, as well as celebratory Tributes shared by family and friends. Also included are selected sermons for some of the more difficult funerals—such as those for infants, suicides, or accident victims—as well as prayers that can be used during personal devotion, in grief counseling or at public worship.

Designed for new pastors but applicable for seasoned clergy as well, this book offers a unique way to provide hope at a time of great loss.
