On September 23 after chapel in OCC, retired pastor Chris Miller will be here to give away books to aid in preaching at end of life situations. He will have a table set up outside of chapel. Come on by to get some books to aid in your ministry.
Retired pastor Chris Miller and 14 other clergy (active and retired), along with seven lay people, have contributed Funeral Sermons, Tributes, and Stories to give new pastors confidence in preaching to the family, your church members and your community at this special time—at the end-of-a-life. Hearts are open in unique ways to hear the Gospel, give thanks for a life shared, and acknowledge the reality of death in our lives. You want to be the preacher who addresses those needs and opportunities … with examples that have served these clergy in common or special, tragic or non-traditional cases. They offer a template to guide in your prayerful preparations.
