    based on 78 ratings

    Funeral message for Mrs. Julia Hamilton, the mother of several accomplished sons. A "lovely light" (of Millay’s poem) is one which reveals truth, shares light in the household, and looks to God as the author of all light.

    The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ... I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. The Lord is my light – and on this dismal day, when outside the rain continues to fall, more

    based on 57 ratings

    Funeral sermon for Michael Ellis, avid golfer and new believer. God has done definite things in Michael’s life, has provided a definite plan of salvation, and has given the definite gift of eternal life.

    I know almost nothing about the game of golf. I do know that Michael Ellis was an avid golfer. Even there in the hospice it seemed to comfort him to watch golf on television.

    Funeral sermon for Doris Reynolds Parker, veteran teacher, civil rights worker, and mother, whose spirit of determination we can complete if we commit to justice, kindness and a walk with God.
