It's true: most people don't enjoy talking about death or funerals. They're such significant life experiences, that it can seem better to not mention them too often. Yet the rituals we practice and the prayers we say when someone dies aren't improvised in the moment; they are the living out of long traditions that deserve renewed attention.

This two-session study explores the history of Christian funeral practices, modern questions for our twenty-first-century context, and practical issues related to funerals and memorial services. Affirming the Christian belief of life in Christ even after death, this study reminds us that funerals are significant, and taking time to think about them in a Christian community can be both helpful and meaningful. Multimedia resources and a variety of leadership options allow opportunity for reflection, conversation, and practical action.

Adam J. Copeland is Director of Stewardship Leadership at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he teaches and directs the Center for Stewardship Leaders.
