Mars Hill Community,
As some of you have already learned, our brother Stan went home this morning at around 4:00 am. There are hardly words to express the heartache and shock his loss brings. As a community, and as individuals who have been deeply touched by his brilliance and kindness, we will grieve this tragic event, and celebrate the life he lived for many years.
Please keep his wife, Edna, and his children Joel and Corina, and his granddaughter, Anika, in your prayers as the weight of their loss becomes more real in the days ahead.
Over the coming weeks, we as a community will determine how we can collectively respond to this life changing event for us all. As I mentioned in yesterday’s note, on Monday afternoon, from 1-2:30 in classroom one, those who are available and wish to will gather to pray, grieve, reflect and celebrate.
In sadness and hope,
