Someday, I intend to die. And when I do, I would like to have a big say in what my funeral looks and sounds like. In fact, I'm seriously considering officiating at my own funeral. I'm thinking that I could prerecord and then via video lead whoever shows up through a journey of remembering my life--at least the stuff that I think is important. What I don't want is someone who doesn't know me very well giving one of those generic funerals where some nice sentiments are shared and everyone keeps checking their watches (cell phones?). Who knows me better than me? And besides, I'm really good at funerals. If there were a way to specialize in pastoral ministry, mine would be funerals. Well I'm getting ahead of myself a bit because I don't intend to share my funeral with you--not yet anyway. I do want to share with you today the songs that I want played at my funeral. Songs at a funeral can say a lot about a person. By the way, I have no plans to die anytime soon--I just thought I would share my songs with you...
