Dad wanted his funeral service to feel like you were going to church on Sunday morning. He wanted music and singing, scripture reading, prayer, and a full sermon on the Cross of Christ and the hope of the Resurrection. The only thing that dad did not request was an offering:)
He wanted me to preach the sermon, but before that, he wanted me to begin the worship service with some of his favorite songs on the piano. This video clip catches the last two songs of a medley that I put together for him: Unseen Hand and It is Well with My Soul. Several began to sing the words as I played. This was worship of our Living God. This is God’s grace through Jesus Christ.
