Undertaken With Love: A Home Funeral Guide for Congregations and Communities is a manual and study guide written by a group of home funeral advocates across America for congregations considering a home funeral ministry. It also is suitable for secular social groups and families that want to explore home funerals. In most of the U.S., a family may care for its own dead until burial or cremation without involving licensed funeral professionals. It does require a willingness to be something of a pioneer in today’s hands-off society, but those who have chosen to reclaim this historical tradition confirm that the process is enormously healing and meaningful. Presented in a study guide format for six self-training sessions, Undertaken With Love describes: how to start a home funeral committee; how to research and identify your legal rights, options and responsibilities; how to handle, bathe and transport the body; and how to sustain an effective home funeral committee.
