Seniors: Prepare for Your Death

Oct 18th, 2010 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

The title of the sermon was How to be a Good Dead Person. And it was the second in a series. The church is in a community primarily composed of senior citiens. The minister didn’t get thrown out on his ear, and people in the congregation really seemed to resonate with what he was saying. It was based on the Ecclesiastes verses in Chapter 3, about there being a time for everything… including a time to be born and a time to die.

He told the story of the woman who, when he preached a similar sermon a few years ago in another church, stormed out, withdrew her membership from the congregation and said, “I don’t go to church to hear about dying!”
