A fun night last night when we gathered to tell stories of disastrous funerals (Breaker Betty and Tam the Bam featured heavily). We spoke about the kind of funerals we would like.
What would you like people to say about you once you’re gone?
What hymns do you want? Chances are that the folk who sit next to you in church know what your favourite hymns are but your children don’t. Do you want to be like all the others who end up with Morning has Broken and All Things Bright and Beautiful because those are the only hymns your children know?
So they have all gone home with their forms to fill in with all the information a priest would ever need when doing a funeral. My life is going to be so much easier now!
