In Memoriam: "Pastor A"

A number of Mod-Blog readers are former attenders of my church, so it seems appropriate to post this note here. We got notice yesterday afternoon that the former senior pastor of my church, Pastor A, died at 2 AM on 10/22. Pastor A - a man of booming voice, imposing presence, and unshakeable faith - lead the church I now attend for 37 years and was a vital part of every parishioners life. He is in many ways my idea of what God must be like in power, in goodness, and in sometimes being a little scary. He will be sorely missed, even as we celebrate his being welcomed into Glory by Christ.

If anyone is interested, calling hours will be next Monday, October 29, at Abriola Parkview Funeral Home and the memorial service that evening at 7:00 pm at Christian Heritage School. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. A, and many children and grandchildren.

He was one of a kind. He will be sorely missed. He put an imprint on everyone he met. And he was unfailing in the representation of the gospel.
