A Time To Die

Today's headlines are just chock full of sad news. Cultural icons Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcette have both died.

Michael Jackson was pronounced dead at 3:15 pm today in Los Angeles, CA. Emergency workers found the singer/dancer in full cardiac arrest at a rented home where he was practicing for another career comeback. If ever there were an unhappy child, Michael is probably the poster boy for that. Jackson was 50 years old. Let us hope that the "King of Pop" made his peace with the King of the Ages before he went.

Meanwhile, Farrah Fawcette, actress and 70's sex symbol has lost her battle with cancer, dying at the age of 62. A Roman Catholic, Farrah was given Last Rites shortly before her death. We pray that this Charlie's Angel will be rejoicing with the angels in Heaven.

There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment, so also Christ, offered once to take away the sins of many, 20 will appear a second time, not to take away sin but to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him. Hebrews 9:27-28
