← My sister wanted a godless funeral. But still invited God

Last Friday I attended my first ever humanist funeral. Nobody that I spoke to seemed to mind the absence of a religious feel. In the same way, nobody seemed to mind that the glorious In Paradisium from Faure's requiem (with its religious implications) was played as an introduction. The ceremony was conducted by a very skillful lady from the BHA. (By coincidence I blogged about it (rather briefly) yesterday.)
