A gentleman from our church passed away earlier this week. I didn't know him, but knew who he was. Since he passed away I've been hearing such lovely things about him. The recurring theme is how he affirmed so many people. This man supported every area of the ministry in one way or another. He had kind words for the choir, the children's ministry, the administrative staff... all of us. He would stop in the office specifically to ask which areas of the church needed support.
Is that an amazing legacy?
Like I said, I didn't know this man, but I certainly benefited from his support, I would argue the entire church did in one way or another. Someday I hope my words leave a legacy of love in the same way.
