The Sad, the Unexpected, and the Weird

In case you hadn't seen the sad news, Chuck Smith has died.  A Memorial Website for Chuck Smith

Please pray for his family, as well as the many who loved him, and for the future of Calvary Chapel. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints" (Ps. 116:15).

Never thought I'd see this.  Moody Bible Institute is allowing professors to enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine (or two).  Apparently, academically-qualified teetotalers are hard to find.  Students, however, are still considered weaker brothers and sisters.  Alcohol at Moody Bible

Now this is really weird.  Thanksgiving and Hanukkah fall on the same day this year.  This won't happen again for 70,000 years (h.t. Larry Johnson).  Thanksgivukkah

Maybe they'll clear you to teach at Moody now. ;)

Though I'm in the PCA now I thank God for the Calvary Chapel Movement through which God sovereignly used them to preach the gospel to me. Though my theology is different now I love and appreciate my Calvary Chapel brethren, and Chuck Smith. That big smile he had is even bigger now.

I agree wholeheartedly with Michial's comments.I am a product of Calvary Chapel's outreach to the lost youth of my day in the 70's. Sad day for his family,friends and church associates.
Glorious day for Pastor Chuck.

Thanks thanksgiving Hanukkah is unreal! And though have never celebrated Hanukkah before feel some strange obligation to celebrate it in some way this year!

Ditto to Michael, et all,

Thanks to the CC movement & Pastors Chuck, Mike Mackintosh & Bill Holdridge, I met
Jesus...learned to read and love the bible...I ultimately couldn't hold to the Armenian doctrine, but
Because of the solid grounding in the word and expositional teaching I received @ CCMB, I saw
Christ and His abundant grace. While we differed in some soteriology, I was never treated badly by my
CC pastors. I think Pastor Chuck set an example in following Christ and keeping Christ as the head of the local churches...God richly blessed many of us when he sent Chuck to share the love of Jesus to so many of us. He wasn't perfect--but he kept a sense of humor and balance in his demeanor...We will miss him, but will rejoice as he goes before us. Save me a seat, Pastor Chuck.
