I received an invitation from the funeral directors to a memorial service today.
I decided to go assuming , despite being in a church, it would be a service for remembering our loved ones.and a chance to meet others .
Halfway through I couldn’t bear it any longer. I’ve been to many church services in my time but never one so dire and impersonal.
No thought was given to those with no or little faith, no comfort, just lengthy impersonal preaching that God will save us all in our hour of need.
I came away in tears, so upset that I had to sit in the car before I could drive home.
In this day and age why had nobody considered making the service around those we had lost and wanted to remember ?
Has anyone else felt like this? J
