This project focuses on the need for the congregation to participate in the rituals of death in the life of the church. The context for this project is a small town in Ohio that has been struggling with its identity and solidarity. The hypothesis was tested using a workshop, sermons, personal testimonials, and questionnaires. Through the course of the project the hypothesis was supported that while initially congregation members might have a distaste for the subject, once exposed to the benefits of communal practice, a majority were willing to participate in future funerary rituals
