OCT 30 Isn't A Good Day

Two years ago yesterday , the day before Halloween, Mike Yaconelli died tragically in an auto accident. Mike was the founder of Youth Specialties. I was with Mike the last meeting that he spoke at. Mike went home. We miss him, but we will see him again.

Yesterday, the day before Halloween - Kyle Lake, the pastor of University Baptist Church in Waco, Texas which is the home church of David Crowder and band died.

He has wrote acouple of great books, (Re)understanding Prayer that just came out about 2 weeks ago on Relevant Books.

The details are not all in yet, but somehow during this mornings worship gathering at his church, he was electrocuted in the baptistery. At least that is the initial report. He died leaving a young wife, and three kids.

This all really hard to take in. As I reflect on the news from yesterday and watch the steam from my morning coffee I am reminded that life is a vapor.
