The next revolution in family ministry

k-bigpic
The debate over family ministry has been alive and well over the past 10 years and for that I am grateful. One of the things I was not aware of is how Dad’s  were removed from being the primary spiritual leaders of their homes through the industrial revolution. Up to that point there was no separation of duties within the family. The husband and wife were partners in both the economics of their home as well as the more domestic duties of child rearing with in the home. What’s crazy is the church let it happen.

Funerals are mandatory weddings are optional. – Mayor Giuliani

I read this 12 years ago and have never forgot it. It comes from Mayor Giuliani’s book on leadership. Up until that point I had avoided funerals. Funerals are difficult. It isn’t easy to be confronted with your own mortality on a regular basis.  Rudy Giuliani’s quote is  actually a restatement of Ecclesiastes 3:2-4

2 Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties.
    After all, everyone dies—
    so the living should take this to heart.
Sorrow is better than laughter,
    for sadness has a refining influence on us.
A wise person thinks a lot about death,
    while a fool thinks only about having a good time.
