Famous Last Words

I have been thinking about what I will say on Sunday. As I have, my mind has often gone back to Chuck, the minister with whom I worked at Wilshire. I still remember his last sermon, and some of it will be a model for me. I heard from Chuck today. He provided some commiseration about the difficulty of this week, and some words of encouragement.

Diane, a friend from High Pointe, also sent me this link http://video.stumbleupon.com/#p=ithct48cqw . It is a video of a professor who is dying of pancreatic cancer who gave his last lecture for his class.

Times like this make you think about what is most important in life, both for our families and for the church.

I don't remember Chuck's last sermon, but I remember his announcement that he was leaving. It hit me right in the gut because I'd never felt a minister go, one who I was close to.

Good luck in Texas, I'm sure Liberty will miss you very much.

I did notice that you'll be speaking at Heartland in April? If I'm still around, I'll come and see you.

Jeremy,

That day hit me hard too. Thanks for the well wishing.

I would love to see you at Heartland. God bless.
