Tonight I went to a prayer gathering and celebration of the life of our pastor who died one year ago today. He was only 58 and seemed to be vibrantly healthy. He simply did not wake up one morning.
He spoke a lot about pushing through your fears. I guess that’s why I kept going to his church when I don’t believe a lot of his religious teachings. His spiritual and practical teachings were very well aligned with my beliefs.
His messages were honest, open, and applicable to everyday life. He usually ended his messages with an enthusiastic “Go get ’em!” He inspired me. I sure miss him.
