Struck by Russ Ramsey, Free for CAPC Members
Death’s party-crashing ways are detailed in a new book by Russ Ramsey, titled Struck: One Christian’s Reflections on Encountering Death.
Custom hearses, parade processionals, destination funerals—these are the latest trends in the funeral industry. Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson discuss our culture’s growing fascination with end-of-life gatherings devoid of traditional services and mourning, raising the question of the need and purpose of grieving our losses.
Theme music by Maiden Name.
