I've been reading the blog of Dr. John, retired Lutheran pastor, living in Wisconsin. He faithfully posted every day, reflecting on faith in life, sometimes commenting on politics, and also creating an imaginary world of fun, but often with a deep meaning. He wrote about his health struggles which often kept him confined, but he traveled the world through the internet.
Since there had been no blog post for a couple of weeks, I went to the last posting and read the comments, where it some blog friends reported that Dr. John, child of God, had moved on to heaven. I miss him. I can imagine that he was a wonderfully warm pastor in the churches he served, reflecting the love and grace of God that had changed his life.
