Really ought to put this in two different threads but see how they go..
Challenge 1: Baptism service where the husband(a Muslim) has insisted that as his wife is Christian they must have the child Christened... This should focus the presentation of the gospel a lot!! Any Ideas for all age talks for tomorrow...
Challenge 2: Funeral service for Murder victim, age 30, need to find some good readings/poems/ prayers.. Any ideas?

Immediate reaction - it is a baptism - the 'Christening' might result - or might not! - Both are religions of The Book - at least the OT - so preach on the OT reading rather than the Gospel? - OTOH perhaps this means he is a progressive Muslim and (since they do accept Christ as a prophet) preaching on what is our new Testament but (presumably) part of their old testament would not be a problem for him!
