For the recently departed servant of God Joshua
« on: September 02, 2013, 10:36:36 AM »
Please remember in your prayers the servant of God Joshua who departed this mortal coil last night.  He was the epitome if "Dont Judge A Book By Its Cover."  A bouncer at the famous 9:30 Club in DC, Josh was tattooed and pierced all over and was very intimidating looking but also quite gentle.  If you were causing problems and.had to leave the club, he did not fight you, he simply moved you and that was that.  He was the kind of guy who always high fived you back even if he didnt know you.

Memory Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Memory eternal.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
