I wasn't sure exactly where to post this. I have learned of the death of a pastor's widow at age 101. For a time, the pastor served in high office
in the denomination, but I did not know him.
Her first name is Eleanor. She joined the saints in heaven on December 27, and her funeral will be January 2.
Sad news But 101!
What is your point Scholar? Any person who has died deserves respect, regardless of their age, as for the fact that her husband was a Pastor, is irrelevant unless we all knew him.
Um how about a "may she rest in peace"?
I'm certain that she will rest in peace. I would, that there were more in this world, who, upon their demise, would also rest in peace.
Long lived indeed. R.I.P.
You are absolutely right, friend, Bear. No one can know for certain where any of us ends up. All we can do is live our lives by faith and trust in our heavenly Father to look after us. It always amazes me, the number of people who are ready to pass judgement on who is going to heaven, and who isn't. It is not for any of us to say, God is the one who judges there. All I am willing to day is it will be very surprising upon that day for all of us, some, because they thought that they were ok, and weren't, others because they thought they weren't, and were. The rest may also be surprised at some of the "inclusions".
Three men killed in an accident meet st peter at the gate?
St peter told them depending how sexually responsible they had been would depend on the transport they'd be given.
The first married his childhood sweetheart and was faithful to the end.st peter gave him a rolls royce.
The second had a couple of affairs so was given a honda civic.
The third had been aportioning himself about to 200 women, he was given a BMX cycle.
The driver of the rolls royce stopped as he thought the man had had a nasty fall off his BMX. to his surprise he wasn't injured but rolling around in histerical laughter. when asked what he was laughing at his reply was " I've just seen a vicar on roller skates".
Back on thread
God rest her soul may she rest in piece.
She had had a good innings.
I do not presume to look into a person's heart, but I do accept their profession of faith. (As a Roman Catholic priest will declare forgiveness to those who confess and ask for forgiveness.)
