I know I was quite shocked to hear about the death of one of our church's most valuable members: Someone Else.
Certainly with Someone Else’s passing, many others will have to step up, for Someone Else has been doing more than a normal person’s share of God’s work through the years. Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results. Whenever there was a job to do, a class to teach, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone's list— Someone Else.
It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the largest givers in the church. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone assumed Someone Else would fill that need. Were the truth known, everybody expected too much of Someone Else.
But now Someone Else is gone! We can't depend on Someone Else anymore!
