D James Kennedy Passed Away
« on: October 22, 2007, 03:29:31 AM »
I just found out D James kennedy Passed away in September. I was a little shocked because he looked like he was in good shape. I used to listen to him back when I was a protestant, but since becoming Orthodox I haven't listened to any protestant preachers at all (whats the point?). Anyway, may his memory be eternal. I personally thought he was a nice man.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say

Kennedy died in his sleep at home in the early morning hours of September 5, 2007.[15] [16][11][1] The White House issued a statement the following day, saying that U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush were "deeply saddened" by Kennedy's death, calling the Florida-based televangelist and author "a man of great vision, faith, and integrity ... Dr. Kennedy's message of love and hope inspired millions through the institutions he founded...".[17]

Kennedy is buried at Lauderdale Memorial Park Cemetery in Ft. Lauderdale[18]
Troparion - Tone 1:
O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

Memory Eternal, indeed.

In an age where most folks talking about Jesus on television are so far-out it's scary, his was a welcome, relatively sane voice.  He will be missed.
