Funerals these days.
Life – and death – continue. Having just written about how to lead funerals and memorial services – and working in the hospital – we’re getting questions about what happens to services in the current health situation. I wanted to do some writing about that, but others are creating helpful resources. Here are some of the best so far. I’ll keep updating this list.
- When a loved one dies during the coronavirus pandemic helps people think through options and decisions about many of the questions we are hearing.
- “4 Steps to Navigate a Death during a Pandemic” (Have a plan, offer options, share grief, offer hope.)
- The Massachusetts Council of Churches has an extensive and helpful description of how to plan and conduct services. It includes a sample funeral policy for congregations.
