ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Order for the Burial of the Dead

Last Sunday, December 8, one of my uncles died in Georgia. Funerals remind us that we too are mortal and will stand before God in the judgment some day. May we be found in Christ on that great day. I invite you to read the service for burial found in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
