Celebrating in the Face of Death, part 4

Profile Photo-2014In our fourth and final part on “Celebrating in the Face of Death” we take a look – and listen – at some “Bold, IN-YOUR-FACE, DEATH!, Comforting Hymns.” These hymns give “a certain untoward gesture” to death as we rest in the comfort of Jesus’ resurrection and the hope of eternal life in Him. We certainly recommend these kinds of hymns for your funeral.

Profile Photo-2014In this third part of our series on “Celebrating in the Face of Death,” we discuss specific hymns often used at Christian funerals. According to Pr. Randy Asburry, some hymns are certainly “good ol’ favorites,” but do we really know why? What are some guiding questions you may want to consider when planning your funeral and when choosing the hymns? We respond to listeners’ suggestions  of hymns that they would like sung at their funerals. Also listen as we evaluate “good ol’ favorites” such as “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” and “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”

Profile Photo-2014We continue discussing Pr. Randy Asburry’s presentation on pastoral care at the time of death. Here we delve into how pastors care for their dying members by means of “The Commendation of the Dying.” Listen to how God’s Word brings soothing comfort to those on death’s door step and to their loved ones around them.

Profile Photo-2014Co-host Pr. Randy Asburry plays guest as we discuss pastoral care at the time of death. Since every human being ends up in the grave, just how do we deal with death? Christians have a very unique way of dealing with death. It’s called “Celebrating in the Face of Death.” But how and why? Pr. Asburry begins to give a recap of a presentation that he made at the “Institute on Liturgy, Preaching, and Church Music,” which was held at Seward, Nebraska, in July 2014.
