Description: Perhaps the most important thing that churches must understand is that a Christian funeral is a service of worship – “A Service of Death and Resurrection.” It is also a service of witness that affirms and reinforces our faith. However, funerals today have taken on various forms of services ranging from the very secular to commercial productions. Using Thomas G. Long’s pastorally practical guide Accompany Them with Singing: The Christian Funeral, this session will examine and cover four necessary elements for a good funeral: the Holy Person, the Holy Place, the Holy People, and the Holy Script.

Location: McCrary Music Building, Baylor University – Waco, Texas
