The man who did our pre-marital counseling passed away from cancer yesterday. He was also a family friend. He was a very wise man who spoke grace & truth into literally hundreds of lives. I’m very sad about the loss. I’m heartbroken for his family.
I wanted to write about him today, but I can’t find the words. I’ll say this, though: I learned a lot from him, and I wish that everybody had a chance to know a person like Dale at some point in their life. Even the “small” part he played in my life, was an important one. His teachings on grace and identity changed the way I think about faith, my relationship with God, and – honestly – myself.
I’m glad he lived, and I’m glad he’s no longer in pain.
If you pray, please pray for his family.
