Help for those who have been bereaved to express their thoughts and feelings. Will make people more confident in planning a funeral service and dealing with clergy. Many non-churchgoers attend funerals. The book will contain pieces that offer an insight into the difference Christian faith and hope can make. Follows the style of the highly successful Readings for Weddings which has sold over 7,000 copies. Readings for Funerals is a perceptive collection of Bible quotations, poems, hymns and prose, offering consolation and comfort to those bereaved. Featuring the writing of, amongst others, W. H. Auden, Simon Armitage, Wendy Cope, T. S. Eliot and Joyce Grenfell, it is suitable for use at secular funerals, celebrations of a life and church services.
