A few weeks ago, I was featured in a news article about teaching on “The Funeral Message”. The article entitled “Chaplain Trains Civilian Counterparts” can be found here.
What we say and how we say it matters. As chaplains we must do our best to honor God, the service of those who have served, and care for those left behind.
For those of you who want to get better at funerals, below are some resources for you:
The first is a resource put together by one of my friends Ron Fisher.
- Dignity with Brevity – A Concise Guide to Crafting Christian Funeral Services APR 2014
The Second is the Army Manual providing guidance for Funerals.
There is also a Digital Reference that is a great resource below is a link. (you may need CAC access to view)
There are many books and manuals written to help with funerals.
Do you have any favorites or go-to resources?
