on Death

Here in Seattle today, I heard the most potent gospel message within my memory.

Eugene Cho spoke of his first real encounter with death. It happened many years ago as he visited a dying person and that person's family in a hospital room. Finding himself suddenly seized with treacherous doubt--a moment in which he thought that this present existence might just be the very end of it all, he chose instead to believe Jesus' message of eternal life.

The power of that decisive moment in Cho's life, and his subsequent work to establish Quest, made a joyous impact on me today, and I thank God that my son Micah took me there to hear about it.
