STANLEY J. GRENZ 1950-2005

I was helping with our confirmation class all day today, but Gavin called me to let me know that Stanley passed away today. I am really saddened by this, even more than I thought I'd be. His books- especially Beyond Foundationalism has had a real impact on my theology, and last year when he spoke at Emergent I had the luxury of picking him at the airport and act as his Nashville contact and friend.

Gavin and I treated him to local food, talked theology, family and life. In those few days I really got to know someone that I look up to. I'm sad he's gone and my prayers are with his family.
