LSB Funeral Service

I had the opportunity to use the funeral service from Lutheran Service Book on Saturday. It is different from what I was used to in the Lutheran Worship Agenda, and I found LSB to be a better service. The "Remembrance of Baptism" is much better than the version from LW. I also liked bracketing the Nunc Dimittis with "I am the resurrection and the life ..." (Luke 11.25-26). Having the service in the hymnal is a big improvement! Well done, hymnal committee, well done!

I have used it as well and I find it to be far more incarnational and focused on the resurrection -- I like the concluding singin in the committal -- the abide with me

nice touch I think

YES! This (incarnational) is what I was thinking as well, but couldn't put my finger on it.
