Choices … attend a funeral or a wedding?

A another mass funeral in Syria.  This one (Feb. 26, 2013) in Homs.

Which do you think is better…

* To choose to attend a funeral?

* Or to choose to go to a party?

(Yes, I am setting you up!)

Well, here’s your answer from one of my favorite Bible books:

Ecclesiastes 7:2

New International Version (NIV)
It is better to go to a house of mourning
    than to go to a house of feasting,
for death is the destiny of everyone;
    the living should take this to heart.

 A young, evangelical Funeral Director who gets this is named Caleb Wilde (@calebwilde).  He is becoming one of my favorite bloggers @

He’s so thoughtful and and quite the gifted writer.  Here is Wilde’s post from yesterday (2/28/2013).  Really terrific IMO, though sobering. (Remember now, the guy’s a funeral director.)
