One of the cultural experiences that we’ve had a lot of lately is funerals.  We have a friend whose brother died suddenly and another whose father passed away.  We have learned which flowers are appropriate to bring and what to wear.  We understand now that the men all stand outside the house and really just make small talk or pace.  The women are inside, with the body, weeping and consoling. This can go on for days. We have seen the exhausted mourner. When we have these opportunities to share life, in one of the deepest ways, will you pray that we have the words to say (or not say).  Would you pray that our actions would point to Christ and His hope?
