More Christians are opting for cremation in the U.S.
(PRWEB) November 10, 2015
Urns in Style, a leading provider of museum-quality cremation urns that exquisitely celebrate the lives of beloved people and pets, has introduced its new “Empyrean” collection that reinterprets conventional religious cremation urn design with a stylish and modern aesthetic.
“Our new Empyrean collection fills a void in the marketplace by elevating conventional religious cremation urn design with a modern aesthetic that tastefully celebrates the sacredness of life,” says Urns In Style’s founder Michi Kustra.
The new Empyrean collection features four full-size urns in two styles: Empyrean Hills and Empyrean Winds. Each offering reflects the sacred and eternal, and is designed to inspire tranquility and peace. Every piece is also hand-crafted, made of top-quality ceramic in black or white finish, and features a wooden lid crowned with a minimalist, stainless steel cross. Optional engraving is also available.
Major religions are opening up to the idea of cremation. According to research by Cremation Association of North America, Protestants, Catholics, Baptists, and people affiliated with other religions are increasingly choosing cremation over traditional burials.
"Cremation is the new tradition in the United States, primarily because people can personalize the way they want to memorialize friends and family," commented Barbara Kemmis, executive director of Cremation Association of North America (CANA). "Expressions of faith need not end at death. It is important to have urns and other memorial options that reflect the life lived.”
In addition, the 2015 Funeral and Memorial Information Council study showed that more than 60 percent of self-identified Protestants and Catholics would choose cremation for their family and friends in 2015. For Protestants this is a jump of 56 percent from 2004, and for Catholics this is a jump of 72 percent over the same period, respectively.
