Bag of Randomness for Monday, May 25, 2015


  • I mentioned early last week a female church member died, perhaps I could have better described her as a fairly young (57-ish) matriarch of our church.  For reasons unbeknown to me,  her funeral or memorial service will take place next weekend, many thought it would have been towards the end of last week.  Yesterday’s normal worship serviced was something like a “pre-funeral service” as her life and how people of faith deal with death were the subject.  I’ll share two things our pastor stated.  (1.)  Don’t say anything akin to “she was needed more in Heaven than on Earth.”  That’s bad theology, just stop it. (2.) Be careful not to share war stories saying that you either understand or that you’ve been through something similar or worst.  Each case is specifically unique.

    That building looks more like the USS Voyager. I hope for he's a better CEO than Janeway.
