It looks like I’ll be spending most of this coming Friday up at my church. The chairman of the elders died five days ago and they’re holding the memorial service this Friday. On top of that a pipe broke earlier last week and flooded one of the buildings, so they’re rushing to repair, improve, and make ready for the memorial service. I’ve committed to help out from about sun up to sun down on Friday.
Make sure to pray for the family of this man. He and his wife always had a big focus on the institution of marriage, and even helped launch a national conference (though I don’t know what it’s called). Apparently he touched a lot of lives. They’re expecting between 600 and 1,000 people to attend his memorial.
