My father, a longtime VU professor, died late Saturday night after having had a stroke earlier this month. I'll be preaching at his funeral this Saturday.


I shall not die but live and proclaim the praises of the Lord. Ps cxviii

God's peace to all who mourn your father's passing, Peter.


May God be with you, your mother, and all the family. "I am the Resurrection and the Life."

Peace, JOHN

It's OK to Pray


I pray that God will bring you and your family the great comfort of the gospel as you mourn the loss of your father, Peter.  Take to heart the words of our Lord, "I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live and he who lives and believes in me shall never die."

Rob Morris

May the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead grant to you and the whole family strength, comfort, hope, joy, and peace that passes understanding.

Jeremy Loesch

God grant His comfort to you Peter and to all those who mourn.  Christ is risen!

A Lutheran pastor growing into all sorts of things.

George Rahn

"If we have been united with Him (Jesus) in a death like His, we will certainly be united with Him in a resurrection like His."  The hope we have in our Savior is through His promise for us received in baptism and faith.  God comfort you and your family during this time, Pr. Speckhard.


Peace and comfort to you and your family.
