Funeral and Memorial officiating
Customized funeral officiating by Sarah E. K. Lentz, M.Div.: specialist in nonreligious and interfaith spiritual services
In today’s society. we rarely talk about death and dying, so when it happens, we often don’t know where to turn. Should we call the pastor from the church we left years ago? Should we try to create our own memorial from scratch? From my days as an interfaith hospice chaplain, I am well-aware of how challenging these moments can be. In response, I offer something in-between the religious and do-it-yourself options: customized funeral and memorial officiating, inspired by my spirituality and Connectedness research.
I have a Master of Divinity–the same degree many pastors get–from Harvard Divinity School, but I personally identify as nonreligious. Based on my education and experience, I’ll work with you to create a personalized funeral or memorial that feels meaningful at a level of religiousness suited to the person and community we are honoring.
