  • Cremation

    Maybe you became acquainted with cremation in connection with the death of someone you knew or loved. You went to visit the family at the funeral home or attended the service at church and wondered where the casket was.

  • This service was submitted by Ken Baker, pastor of Third Christian Reformed Church, Kalamazoo, Michigan. He writes: "After preaching a series on the Ten Commandments, I developed a liturgy for a concluding Service of Rededication. Whether as a 'wrap up' service, as in our case, or standing on its own, such a service can play a meaningful role in reinforcing the meaning of the Decalogue in our lives." The readings were taken from different "Responsive Readings of the Law" (PsH p. 1013-1018).
