…was going to be the study project that I was going to work on, but then I found out that someone had already done it. Back in 2006, Dr. Rodney Decker from Baptist Bible Seminary was a guest speaker at Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary. He gave three lectures on the topic of cremation, which is one of those “I’ve never thought about that much, but I’d like to sometime” subjects. I’ve always had some vague thoughts about it, but now I’ve got a far more educated position on the matter.
The talk is somewhat technical (though not super bad), but it is very comprehensive. I highly recommend the talk if you’ve never really tackled this issue seriously before. Here are the links to his three lectures:
I hope it proves to be as helpful a resource to my readers as it has been to me.
Oh, and since it’s Feb. 14th, I wanted to re-link my post from last year regarding the history of Valentines day (in case anyone is interested in such things)…and for those male readers of mine who are less interested in the history of the holiday and more interested in what to do on Valentines day (for that special someone), allow me to point to a rather obvious lesson with an illustration from nature:
Yup. Clean up your self and your place, figure out what she likes and then do it without complaining (or sharing thoughts about completely unrelated subjects). That is otherwise known as “manning up”. It’s a relatively new concept, but I’ve discovered it to be highly effective. After seven years of marriage, I’ve learned that a rather large component of the guy’s part of a healthy relationship involves three things: clean up, buck up, shut up.
Now off to bed!
Until Next Time,
