  • Andy Lam
    (February 2008)
    This sermon calls us to imagine our own funeral and asks the question: How do we want people to remember us? Will people remember how, like Jacob, we grappled with God and would not let go?
  • Kurt Fredrickson
    (August 2009)
    What should we be mindful of if called on to preach a very public funeral sermon? One pastor shares both the sermon and the reflections on preaching in the public square that guided him through this challenge.
  • Jonathan A. Partlow
    (June 2005)
    Here a pastor shares the sermon he preached at his father's funeral. Using the text and structure of Hebrews 11, he offers a warm reflection on faith and faithfulness.
  • Dennis R. Bolton
    (January 2001)
    As this sermon reminds us, the scriptures are very clear and forceful that in times of crisis, many people feel the absence of God. There is pain, loss, brokenness and death in all of our lives. Yet, even in the context of a funeral, we remember what Ezekiel learned: God's breath suffocates death.
  • Robert E. Coleman
    (March 1986)
    The two sermons which follow were preached by Robert E. Coleman at the funerals of his parents. His father, James Henry Coleman, was buried January 7, 1975, and his mother, Helen Hood Coleman on August 21, 1985. Both messages offer fitting tribute to loved ones, and provide a model for bringing comfort and inspiration in the funeral setting.
