I am a woman and the leader of a nursing home ministry. Twice in the six years of doing this work, I've led memorial services for residents that died. I found the experiences to be soberly intense, important and terribly weighted with responsibility. Fortunately, in both cases the residents were saved and I used their testimony to weave in the Savior and the gospel. I said "intense" because my heart wants every resident (and staff) in attendance to hear the word and get saved. Doing memorial services are 'weighted with responsibility' because I am so anxious to say the right words that would be approved by the Lord - I fear misleading my audience. But in both cases, I informed my preacher of what was going on so he and others could pray for me. I just wanted to share this. Perhaps you have had similar experiences, as Pastor or layman. Let's share.
