More on that Funeral -- Larry Norman
There is a great photo gallery and a nice article about Larry Norman's funeral yesterday in his local paper, the Statesman's Journal in Salem, Oregon. Take a look! (Click on the links above!)
This man had the impact he did because he chose to do the things Jesus told him to do each day, rather than "letting the world sqeeze him into its mold", and because he chose to value people in real ways each day and each encounter. The stories are amazing, and the picture of the life that emerged from the daily choices is so encouraging. This was not a media star. This was a Jesus Follower who was used by Jesus in the moment -- in moment after moment.
That can be you, and that can be me!
