    Semper brothers and sisters our brother and friend Mark Kennedy passed away earlier this month after a short battle with stage 4 Melanoma. It came on fast. He checked in to hospice care on 29 August. Please keep his family in your prayers.

    Mark was a stalwart defender of God’s Word, the doctrines of Grace and spent a lot of time posting about the Glory of God’s Creation.

    This warrior for the Lord will be sorely missed, but now his pilgrimage here on earth has ended and present with the Lord.

    I always loved his avatar.

    I'm grieved to hear of his passing. He possessed a remarkable intellect and curiosity that was noticeable. May God rest his soul.

    Mark was awesome. A kind, charitable man, and a thoughtful poster. I am so glad that I was able to meet him. Christ, have mercy on him.

    Oh, no. This is sad.

    But from what I knew of him he was a friend of Jesus.

    Prayers for him and his family.

    Wow it happened so quickly. At least his travail is ended. I look forward to fellowshiping with him face to face in Emmanuel's land. Prayers for his loved ones.
    The sands of time are sinking,
    the dawn of heaven breaks,
    the summer morn I've sighed for,
    the fair sweet morn awakes;
    dark, dark hath been the midnight,
    but dayspring is at hand,
    and glory, glory dwelleth
    in Emmanuel's land.

    The King there in his beauty
    without a veil is seen;
    it were a well-spent journey,
    though sev'n deaths lay between:
    the Lamb with his fair army
    doth on Mount Zion stand,
    and glory, glory dwelleth
    in Emmanuel's land.

    O Christ, he is the fountain,
    the deep sweet well of love!
    The streams on earth I've tasted,
    more deep I'll drink above:
    there to an ocean fullness
    his mercy doth expand,
    and glory, glory dwelleth
    in Emmanuel's land.

    The bride eyes not her garment,
    but her dear bridegroom's face;
    I will not gaze at glory,
    but on my King of grace;
    not at the crown he gifteth,
    but on his piercèd hand:
    the Lamb is all the glory
    of Emmanuel's land.
    Samuel Rutherford-1857

    I am so sorry to hear this. I will miss him on CF, and I will pray for him and his family.

    @redleghunter , did you know him in real life?

    We were in correspondence often. Never met him in person. Chatted quite a bit about faith and family. We were in the same huge headquarters building in Iraq in 2007 but obviously did not know each other there.

    He was a Transportation guy in the Army and worked similar jobs after he got out.

    In private correspondence he was the same guy. Always calm, never letting anything get under his skin. Passionate for the Gospel. He will be missed. When he was diagnosed and given months to live it did not fluster him a bit. He continued his walk in private life and kept coming back here to discuss with others.

    On August 29th he sent a PM saying chemo and immunotherapy was not working and he decided to go into hospice. Even then he said “let me get settled in and I’ll be back (to CF)” as he wanted to share a lot of his research with some here. Unfortunately he did not get that chance but I’m sure he used those last days getting his adult daughter set up. She was working with him at his job.

    I was actually going to check up on him since I hadn't seen him post for a while. Now I understand why...

    I mentioned his daughter. They were not in close contact until last year and reunited. Mark often asked prayers for her as she had a rough life. So please lift up prayers for his daughter.
