Evangelism
United Methodist clergy conduct a graveside funeral service for Frederick Harris at Hills of Calvary Memorial Park in Nashville, Tenn., as part of the Call the Name program. The volunteer program, started by the Rev. Jay Voorhees (left), provides clergy to acknowledge deceased people who haven’t been claimed by anyone, making sure that their name is said aloud one last time and offering a short ritual of committal in their honor.
