Noel White’s new book Celebration of Life Through Story ($21.99, hardcover, 9781498497992; $12.99, paperback, 9781498497985; $6.99, eBook, 9781498498005) shares that a story has been part of human life from the very beginning. Whether it be in a speech, a sermon, or a funeral, people remember the stories that are told, thus remembering the points of the message and the person whose life is being celebrated. Abstraction and vague theological points are soon forgotten by people who are present to honor the deceased. Celebration of Life Through Story is a unique and positive approach to a subject people do not want to talk about--death. This book will help people understand grief, that God is in their story, and that our story is in God's story--even after we physically die.
White writes, “Celebrations of life, funerals, and memorial services are unique opportunities to minister to people who are mourning the loss of a loved one. Many times the pastor will use the same material over and over again. This book is a new approach to help loved ones to understand and feel the importance of scripture, to share with them a theme they can always remember, and to know that God's story, the deceased person's story and the loved one's story are all one---shared through the love of God. Death is a part of every story, but God's love makes it OK.”
As a pastor for over 50 years, Noel White has led many celebration of life services, and heard other pastors do the same. Since childhood and through adulthood, he has listened and received the gospel better through the use of story. It is a tool that every speaker has but too few use. When people are asked what they remember about a speech or sermon they invariably mention the stories. White has found that stories in scripture and about a person's life are the best tool to make the celebration of life positive, remembered and comforting.
