A Peace-filled Passing
This Sunday we continue in the study of death and dying. This time it will center on how to create a peace-filled passing. There are things we can do that bring comfort to our families, help create our personal legacies, and assist in being remembered. One way to offer that is by video.
In one of my past memorial services, I was able to experience the life of a dad being interviewed by a daughter. As he spoke, it was as though I knew him. It changed the whole feeling of the service, and it allowed others to share their experiences with this beautiful man. We all leave a legacy and I ‘ll spend some time talking about that. It will be centered on the scripture about the death of Moses. It is a rich description of how a person might be remembered. In the passage Moses is standing before God. They are on Mt. Moab, just east of the Jordan River valley. The passage describes his age, the mourning, the transition of authority, and ultimately a eulogy that would help every following generation remember why Moses is so venerated. The eulogy is short. The eulogy is powerful.
So the Sunday we’ll explore legacy, a peace-filled passing that allows for a descriptive eulogy. To prepare please read Deuteronomy 34:1 – 12.
