Friends, there isn’t a post for this Sunday from me.  Today is a day of mourning in my church community and as I write this there are people preparing for this afternoon’s memorial service.  I shall be joining them soon.

The service is for our Pastor, the Rev. Paul Kim who died suddenly this past week.

We are shocked and I am personally stunned and saddened by this tragic turn.  Pastor Paul was a teacher, leader and mostly just a good friend.  I had been working with him on a few projects for our church.  Together we had started to make some progress on a few of them and I was optimistic about the future.

He was the kind of man you could rely on and trust in.

Now, he is in the care of God and the church he left too soon is now trying to figure out how to move forward without it’s beloved brother.

And for today, it leaves me with very little time and emotional energy to do the normal reflecting and writing I do each Sunday.  Today I need to cry for my lost friend.

Writing will happen next week,

  1. “Like” is the wrong word of express feeling for this post. How terribly sad it is to lose someone so important in your life. Condolences…

    I’m feel bad to know how much you’re hurting right now. Your church, together, will find a way to move on, but not forget your trusted friend. Take care.

    Andrew—-I am sorry to hear about your friend. Sounds like he made a difference in your life—-and the lives of others that you will never know. Did you know that you are making a difference in the lives of others? Others that you may never meet. Keep writing Andrew—and God Bless your friend.
