A Funeral in Chile

Missionary David Flinck shared a brief message from James 4 at a funeral this afternoon. He reminded the attendees that life is like a vapor–here for a moment and quickly gone. The casket was put into the ground instead of in the common cement niches that most people use.

While this is not the most encouraging or happy thing we could post on the blog, it does serve to remind us of our own mortality (Ecclesiastes 7:2-4), and to educate us about funeral practices in Chile.
