  • From Sorrow to Hope: Choosing music for the funeral service

    In a funeral service, as in any service of worship, well-chosen music can aid sorrowing people to lift their hearts to the God of all comfort. The community of mourners unites in song to express its sorrow and grief to the Man of Sorrows, and to rejoice in the gift of life from the One who has died. In song the mourners express together the faith that is the foundation of their recovery and renewal in hopeful living.

The other is a national celebration of thanksgiving—a day of praising God for the ways 1 which he has blessed us in the past and the present.
