Living the questions and trying to think theologically... and practically. Learning that these things are more synonymous than I once thought.

I don't know what to say right now, but please just read this and keep us all in your prayers. We are devastated.

This morning, Sunday October 30th, our pastor Kyle Lake was involved in an accident during a baptism and was transported by EMS to a nearby hospital. Kyle Lake passed away around 11:30am. Not only did we lose a pastor but we've lost our friend. Funeral services are pending and we will update the website as soon as we have more information.There will be a gathering tonight at 8pm at First Baptist Church Waco which is located on the Corner of 5th and Clay. This is a chance for reflection, an opportunity to be with friends and to pray. There will be counselors available if anyone needs to talk to anyone. Please continue to keep the Lake family in your prayers.

I saw this on Doug Pagitt's weblog, but I didn't make the connection until I saw the story on DrudgeReport and realized that it was your church. I am so sorry Janalee. I pray that God would encourage your church in these difficult days by revealing His presence among you and increasing your love for Him.

Janalee...my thoughts and prayers are with you and your community at UBC. It is hard to think of any words that would offer solace..because there aren't really any at this time, but know that you are loved and being prayed for....

as i realize how many people i know were touched by kyle, i am broken-hearted and saddened by the death of someone i didn't know. this tragedy is so hard to comprehend - the circumstances surrounding it - my heart hurts for his family, for Bags, for my son and his friends and for Dave and all the rest who knew and loved Kyle and Jennifer. God Bless your church and the people who will carry on in Kyle's honor.
