Life is short

Joe Kennedy, emergent newsletter and Jason Burns all have written about the tragic death of Kyle Lake yesterday while performing a baptism. Wow! Life is short. I remember when he started University Baptist Church in Waco, TX. I was in seminary @ Southwestern and was hearing about this radical church in a "baptist" college town. Waco is also where David Koresh lived. UBC was doing cutting edge ministry. David Crowder has been the worship leader there for years. My heart hurts for his family and his church. I can't imagine how horrifying that must have been for his family and church to see him die while performing one of the ordinances of the church! You just never know when God will call us home. My father had 2 fine young college students working for him with Campus Life named Marty Jordan and Brown Matthews. They were unbelievable worship leaders and song writers. While traveling to a church to lead in worship they were involved in a tragic car accident. Brown was killed instantly. Why would God take a 23 year old young man who was serving Him? When I lived in Jacksonville, NC I had a 16 year old young man named Harold Geilow who led our youth worship that was killed in a tragic car accident. He had just told our church he was called into vocational ministry. Why would God allow this to happen? I don't have the answers. Dozens of people accepted Christ at Brown's funeral. I led Harold's memorial and 6 adults accepted Christ there! I have no idea what God will do with UBC and Kyles family. It just convinces me more for the need to press on and do relevant ministry. In fact if there is a way to honor Kyle and other pioneers like him, is to push the envelope and as Jason says Seize the Day!
