Desultory Reflections on My Dear Pastor

And when the chief Shepherd shall be manifested, [the good under-shepherd] shall receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

On Monday, December 11 at approximately 4:15 PM, Dr. Greg Lyle Bahnsen died in St. Joseph's Hospital from heart failure, six days after he had surgery on his dysfunctional aortic valve. On that day the church of Christ lost one of her great leaders, his four children lost a loving father, his parents lost their first born, and his friends lost a warm and loyal companion. On that overcast December day I lost my pastor, the man who watched over my soul.
