I just read a great article from the magazine Modern Reformation, entitled "Funerals From Hell: Where have all the graveyards gone?" It contrasted the now traditional evangelical "celebration of life" with a more traditional Christ-centered service about His victory over sin, death and the grave. It's a few pages long, but definitely worth the read.
I'm hoping that my funeral is not in the near future, but just in case, here are a few thoughts. I hope more is said about the oncoming death of the people in the pews and the repentance that would lead to their eternal life than what I did in my short life. I hope that the service is an acknowledgment that death was not part of God's good creation and that is a sad and terrible curse. I hope there is a celebration, but a celebration of the fact that we do not grieve as others who have no hope (1 Thes. 4:13.) I hope more glory is given to God than to me.
