Death & Burial: a biblical and practical response

What: Death & Burial: a biblical and practical response

Are there alternative ways to burying a loved one? Do you have to use a funeral home? Do I have to use a cemetery? Can I build my own casket? What does scripture say about death? Is cremation biblical? How should a Christian respond to death?

Forethought on the subject of Death and Burial is something everyone must do — whether they like it or not — and it’s much better to have thought things through before tragedy or necessity.

We invited Mr. Donnie Madill to come teach us step-by-step the basics of casket making.

After supper two families shared their testimonies followed by a Q&A time where Anthony Courter shared some of the basic logistical steps and legal ramifications (for TN) needed to be taken in order to properly care for and bury your own dead using non-conventional means.
