Then Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered to his people. Genesis 25: 8
For those of us who have been following the blog diary of Pastor Douglas Duncan, witnessing his struggle with cancer and his inspiring faith, following his journey, reading his poems, we rejoice that he has now been 'gathered to his people' too. There is great sorrow in death but when a godly man dies, there is also rejoicing. His son has added a final entry to Doug's Diary pointing out the glorious news that Doug is now at the wedding banquet of the Lamb! How good is that!!
I knew Doug when he was living and working in Tasmania. He was, among many, many other things, captaining the Boys' Brigade.
My prayers and thoughts go out to his family.
