This is a collection of resources for those who deal with death and grief and are in a pastoring role, who are interested in using a process-relational theology as a framework for aid and comfort, and who need to organize a funeral service. This resource is based on my 24 years of ministry, and especially on my experience of pastoring those who have been in the grip of grief over the death of a loved one. I, too, am acquainted with grief. These resources are what I have found helpful for myself and in helping others in grief.

  1. Everything is in process; reality is flowing; nothing ever stays the same.
  2. All things are interconnected; no human is an island; things are present in one another even as they have their autonomy.
  3. The whole of nature has value; all live beings deserve respect; human beings are not the sole repository of value.
  4. Human beings find happiness in sharing experiences with others; there are no isolated egos; all selves are selves-in-relation; humans become whole through reciprocity.
