Scriptural Speed Bumps “Let the dead bury their own dead…”
Crozetumc   -  

The loss of a loved one is painful and the Church recognizes the human need to mourn, so why does Jesus seem to have such a cold response to one of his disciples’ request to go home and bury his father?  The Church places the utmost importance on funerals, called Services of Death and Resurrection.  Have we been misled, uninformed, or just ignorant?  Come discover what Jesus meant, and why we are encouraged to both mourn the death and celebrate the gift of their life.  We will dig right into this difficult text and come away with God’s Word of comfort and truth.
