Is this useless information? I learned it today. My experience (in the black African church) has been that ministers conduct funerals on Saturdays. Children and people who aren't members of the church are buried during the week. So I thought this was a status thing. I was surprised to find that a minister who passed away last week was not being buried on a Saturday. Why not? Ministers are buried on Thursdays. Ministers' wives are buried on Tuesdays. I didn't ask about ministers' husbands! Grant, do you have a preference?
Our cultures are so different in South Africa.
