Denis and I just got home from our first memorial service of someone associated with our church. A dear church member, one of the founders, beloved by many went home to be with the Lord in a very unexpected way about two weeks ago. Much of his extended family attend our church, and the pastor is his brother-in-law. Denis and I had occassional interactions with the man over the four years since we started attending Bear Creek Church. Loren was always very attentive and interested in us and our lives. It was a blessing to hear all the stories of how his quiet, supporting, generous and serving attitude touch so many lives - of his family and his friends. It was a hopeful, happy service because everyone knows that Loren's faith was rock-solid. We know that he is in the best possible place now and we will be joining him there one day. It was really nice!
