I spent the afternoon yesterday at the celebration of life ceremony for Lori Sipe. It was inspiring as I heard story after story of how she influenced so many.
Pastor Ken shared the message and it was the clearest proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ that I have ever heard. He boiled down life to two things: relationship with God and with others.
This morning I read Acts 20:21-24 where it says that Paul had one aim: to tell others about the good news of God’s wonderful kindness and love. What else is there? As Ken said, we should concern ourselves with the lamp that doesn’t go out (our spirit) rather than be so concerned about our physical bodies. Work on the relationships that will last forever and don’t so be worried about that which is temporal.
Thank you Lori for living a life that pointed people to the most important thing: Jesus.
