Living and dying in Christ


Josh Harris has graciously posted a link to a letter my dad wrote to the family before he died. You can link here.

The day dad died two years ago, and he knew it was the day of his release, he called the family to his bedside at the hospital. Sadly, Jani and I were in Northern Ireland that day. But after the family sang hymns and read Scripture together, dad spoke patriarchal blessings to each one. Then he pronounced upon them the Aaronic blessing of Numbers 6:24-26. Then he fell asleep.

My dad lived and died a man in Christ, full of the Holy Spirit, to the praise of the glory of God's grace.
