    St. John 14:1-7 Text When we are gathered at a funeral or thoughts of the afterlife come to mind, we immediately declare, “I want to go to Heaven, when I die.” Why do we want to go to Heaven?

    Funeral service for Margaret Waddy, retired social worker and community ministry volunteer who, in dementia, became concerned about the depletion of her finances.

    I don’t know anybody who has all they really want. Not really. Not everything. Oh, some of you will piously pretend to be satisfied, but, in my experience, all of us fantasize about having more. Occasionally I watch “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?” and I will shout answers at a deaf TV screen, ...read more

    “He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’” In Jesus’ name.

    Origianlly used for a morning worship service, most recently used at a funeral for a 23yr old lady who died of cancer...easily adaptable for any regualr service or funeral service.

    What comes to your mind when I say "NEW"? What do you think of? I believe I would have to say that I think of Christmas. At Christmas, we get those "new" things. You may have thought of a new car or new house…maybe a new suit of clothes or a new baby even. But when you really stop to ...read more

I built the sermons around various parts of the body, and suggested how we might present our eyes, our ears, our hands, our mouths, and our ...read more

    Funeral message for Gary Pervall, Air Force veteran who died of the effects of Agent Orange.

    Being surrounded is threatening. Even when what surrounds you is not dangerous, you still feel threatened. How do you feel if you are closed in? Suffocated if there is too much of anything surrounding us. I know of people, for example, who don’t like to be in a small room; they get ...read more

    Funeral sermon for Mrs. Lola Black, who died suddenly only five months after her husband’s death.

    In March, when we gathered in this place to say farewell to a creative, innovative man, we did not dream that five months later we would gather again to bid adieu to his cherished helpmate. Charlie and Lola are together again, in death as in life; and it’s almost beyond belief. It just does not ...read more

    Funeral sermon for Mrs. Amanda Foye Jackson, who had suffered through two massive strokes and the loss of her son.

    In Biblical times, a person’s name revealed something about who he was or what she was intended to be. In the creation story, there is Adam, meaning earth, and Eve, meaning mother. Their names told you who they were and what they were intended to be. Abraham, father of nations; Isaac, laughter; ...read more

    based on 40 ratings
     | 8,214 views

    Funeral sermon for Vera Byars, court information specialist and amateur dancer. Ballroom, minuet/ballet, tap -- whatever style she used, it all witnessed to a life of joy. This is not any longer a time to mourn.

    I agree with the Scripture, where it says that, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” I agree with that, because we know that some things are fine, in their place, but they are not appropriate in other places. There is a time and a season for everything, ...read more
