Hmmm … since you want erevyone to guess, I think your favorite is funerals, since it’s less obvious. No doubt you want to get across the message that it’s a joyful occasion when the deceased is a believer. And we all know how much you personally are looking forward to heaven! However, as someone who never knows the right thing to say to comfort someone, I think I’d prefer doing weddings. Also, being around my Dad after funerals he’s done, I think it took a toll on him having to comfort so many grieving family members. It’s just not an easy thing in our society to celebrate death. I asked my Dad once if it was harder doing funerals for someone who hadn’t professed Christ, and he said “not really; it’s more about comforting the ones they’ve left behind.”
Our sincere condolences to Bill, Dolly, Kelly, Cody, and all of the Wilcoxson family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
