On the wearing of black

An article from the NOR about the theological aspects of wearing black at funerals. My late father was a firm believer that traditional dirges and practices of mourning were psychologically healthy, because they were a tangible way of giving expression to grief. Share

Your father was a wise man. In the rush to cleanse the world of old ideas, we've abandoned a lot of customs that psychological health and stability. I'm convinced people are starting to realize that.

Thanks, jeffrey, yes, he was very wise about many things. Hoefully, people are starting to realize the value of old customs, as you say.
