Burial Warning

Earlier in the day, I attended this burial (pictured). A minister said, taking earth from a basin to cast on the coffin: "If you are under Church discipline, do not touch this coffin! Do not come near this grave! I am warning you! If you are among those who preyed on this dear woman now deceased, if you are the one who took her windows out, do not come near this grave! If you are living unlawfully in any way, keep away! If you are a pastor here, and you are uncircumcised of heart, keep away! If only Christians would seriously apply the discipline of the Church, every Church would be full!" OBSERVATION: There was a hush over the congregation, as other pastors voiced their approval.
