Today--Holy Saturday--our church hosted a funeral service for Howard Hodgson, a faithful and long time member.
While some church traditions strictly forbid weddings and funerals on Holy Saturday--the day that we remember Jesus laying in the tomb--I personally believe Holy Saturday is the best day of the year to have a funeral.
For this reason--we live in an age that is in-between Good Friday and Easter.
Our loved ones who have died are in the grave--Good Friday.
We are eagerly anticipating their bodily resurrection--Easter.
Meanwhile, we wait.
It's Saturday. But Sunday is coming!
