On doing it, “My Way”
A snippet from an article I wrote recently for Christian Today:
I cringe when I hear that another family has requested Frank Sinatra’s, “My Way,” for their loved one’s funeral service. Sadly I hear this often because my husband regularly conducts funerals for people who don’t profess Christian faith. Family members feel the song epitomises their loved one’s life as it celebrates independence, self-sufficiency and pride in being able to live a successful life by their own resourcefulness.
It raises two questions for me. Have they really done it “their way”? And are these values we want to encourage?
