Worship went well yesterday although we were soaked in sadness. A former member died Saturday. Well-liked, active in church life and a character.
I opened the service then discussed his death and our grief.
One of his family members came to worship (the day after his death) which impressed me.
Close death shuts me down and I can't imagine "returning to normal" the next day. The family member said she didn't know what to do with her time and it was time for church, so she came to worship. Makes sense to me. We gave her hugs and told stories about the decedent.
I changed my comments section to include that new comments spammie thingie. Turns out that all the D'Waynes of the spammy world commented on Dibbie's post. (See previous post to decipher this paragraph.)
