In my Methodist church we don’t have those kind of funerals you describe here. Most of them are called celebrations of life, and people who knew the person that died get up and share things, sometimes sad, sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant. We don’t have alter calls at funerals either. Nobody is asked to come forward, or anything.
