I was asked to help in the funeral of a dear friend. Her parents were members of the church I pastored, and she and her husband attended my friend's, Keith's, church. She was known for her love of flowers, for quilting and crocheting, and taking an interest in old cars. We were able to relate each of these to various Scriptures. From our Christian perspective, while there is sorrow, there is also often a great deal of hope in such times as these. The crowd was mixed, some would be considered "active in church," and others who don't attend very often, if at all. In the speaking, there was an unusual sense of liberty and receptiveness. Several came to Keith and me expressing appreciation for what we said. Now, I am talking of a church-type situation, but there is also the joy that comes in the public-speaking arena when you feel you are making connections with the audience.
