I just got word that a colleague of mine died this afternoon. I didn’t know him personally, but he was my age (just turned 46) and he had two sons in college — one just a freshman. He recently took a new church position and has been there for only 3 weeks. After preaching in the morning, he had a massive stroke on Sunday afternoon. They said the brain damage was extensive.
Like I said … I didn’t know him. But it makes me realize, again, how fragile life is.
