Elders

This is who Nat and I had lunch with at coffee hour after church.  He shared his ham with Nat and gave us his account of crash-landing his plane in a jungle at the age of 22.  He told us he prayed that if God would let him get the teen-aged soldier who crashed with him home safe, he would devote the rest of his life to whatever God wanted from him.  He said he’s still not sure he figured out what God wanted, but it seems safe to say Mr. Taylor held up his end of the bargain.

  1. WOW! I’m thinking maybe he has done a bit of what God set out for him…

  2. wow – so inspiring to meet a person who has lived a life so filled with service. Meeting him must make you feel good about the church you’ve chosen too as the church is the people

  3. I am always awed by people like him…so great for Nat & you!

  4. What a fabulous morning at church. It really makes me miss my old church. We’re in central NJ now and attending an Episcopal church, which has Godly Play (fantastic)! but a very different mix of people.

  5. What a privelege! One of the many benefits of living in Chicago.
