Explanation of the "Family Crisis"

Here is a personal note.

Some of you may be wondering what a "nonmoral family crisis" is, given my post before last mentioning a "blog recess." It is no scandal, but a great loss. My mother-in-law, Jean Northrup Merrill, entered eternal glory early last Sunday morning. Her funeral is Saturday, November 18, in Phoenix, where we are now staying.

I may write more about her in the near future. Until then, ponder this verse: "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints" (Psalm 116:15). See also Arthur Pink's essay on this verse in his book, Comfort for Christians.
