Compliments Pastor Jessie M. Jones 762-7963 "The love of money is the root of all evil" In the early 70's when I was working away from home, I lived in Manassas for a time. I quickly made some wonderful friends and found a little country church to attend. The church members made me feel right at home. Unfortunately one of the older members passed away suddenly and his family asked me to conduct the funeral. On the day of the funeral, while I was at the funeral home, the direc- tor of the funeral home asked to speak to me in his office. He asked me if I was a union member and I answered "yes, I was "a member of the carpenter's union" - all the time won- dering to myself - why in the world is he asking about unions at a time like this." He went on to explain that that was not the kind of union he was talking about. He said that there was a "ministers union" and that his funeral home added one hundred dollars to the funeral bill to cover the minister's fee. Well, I was floored to say the least! I had never heard have ever charged for that; of a "ministers union" and or when the woman's son I certainly had never heard had died and they were on of a preacher getting paid the way to the grave yard to conduct a funeral. I told to bury him, Jesus did not him I would never dream say "Give me some money of taking money to peach a and I will raise your son funeral and to not add that from the dead." But I guess fee to the family's funeral in this wicked world some costs, people will charge money I can't imagine when for anythingl As the Bible Jesus rose Lazarus from says- "The love of money the dead that He would is the root of all evil."
