It’s an odd sensation to mourn someone you’ve never met, yet here I am. I got home after a long day and read that Mark Palmer died this morning. Readers here might recall a mention I’ve made previously about Mark, or may know of him through the emerging church blogosphere. Also see Alan Creech’s post on Mark’s passing. I didn’t ever discover Mark’s blog or his story until after he was battling cancer, but the manner in which he waged the battle is inspiring. He leaves behind him his second wife Amy, his first wife having died from cancer as well. Mark’s young son Micah has now lost both parents to cancer.
God of mercy, grant peace.
