Stand Near, Without Falling In

Coming Alongside the Dying and Those They Leave Behind

Authored by Robert J Barnett Sr
Edition: 1

In Stand Near Without Falling In, seasoned pastor Bob Barnett presents a practical no nonsense approach to coming alongside those who are dying and those they leave behind. It is a “How To” book that will be reached for often by clergy, staff, and others involved in end of life issues. With personal insights and real world application, Barnett provides a biblical and sensitive pathway for knowing what to do and how to do it when someone dies. Sensitive wisdom is offered into end of life issues from the womb, life support, and special situations. The three fold purpose of the funeral are presented with clear examples of service orders and messages as well. Meaningful word pictures that minister to the broken hearted abound. Practical insights on grief, loss, and the afterlife are presented to help minister and survivor alike. Although this is a practical guide for ministering to the dying, its primary focus will be the loved ones left behind by seeking to answer important questions. How will you tend the broken hearts of the bereaved? How will you bury a baby, a beloved grandmother, an abusive father? What action steps are required when the notification call is received? How will you go about designing a funeral service? How is the funeral sermon different from other sermons you’ll prepare as a pastor? Where will you stand? How will you respond when asked to visit a very ill person? How do you prepare? What do you do? What are some ethical issues involved? What attitudes are necessary to be effective? How does this ministry contribute to one’s overall ministry? These are but a few of the questions answered in Stand Near Without Falling In. If you are looking for a “How To” book on what to do when someone dies, this is the book for you.
