Yet Another Funeral...
...and this one so sad. A 48 year old mother who had, for all that I can see (and I can't see everything, of course), walked away from the covenant of her baptism and apparently died "in the far country." How to preach and hold forth Christ to her family? She's not being buried from the Church, but I could not turn down the opportunity to bring a Word from God at the funeral home. Pray, friends, that the Lord gives wisdom and the right words to say and the grace to say them so that they might be heard. "O Lord, open my lips and my mouth will declare Your praise." And remember in mercy, Lord, Janis Sue whom You once named Your own in the waters of Holy Baptism. Lord, have mercy! Lord, have mercy! Lord, have mercy!
