Godspeed, good friend.

A friend and fellow seminarian, Ben Larson, is presumed to have died in the Haiti earthquake. He was over there with his wife, Renee, and cousin, Jon. They are all good friends of mine and sang at my ordination service. I'm still struggling to accept this whole thing. It doesn't seem real.

The article from CNN is here.

It's hard to find the words in situations like this. So I turned to some that have already been written.


  1. Thanks, Mark. It took me three tries to get through the whole song. We hope to see you sooner rather than later...

  2. Mark, thanks for reminding me of such a message. Being away from WTS is hard at such a time, so I hope you (and you, Bryant) are able to find people to lean up against right now.
