OK. We're without a pastor. I'm chairman of deacons. I had to preach a funeral for the first time. The funeral home director mentioned a "committal". What is that? We had no graveside service since the deceased wanted to be cremated. What is it? When does one do it? BTW, after much prayer and speaking with the other deacons and with our associational missionary, I'm going to become a licensed minister (not ordained). I could be a lay minister for the rest of my life, or God could call me into the full time pastorate. In any case, there are some things I don't know and "a committal" is one of them. Thanks!
