A Poignant Moment

At the May meeting of Northeast Presbytery, TE Gerry Yost, Pastor of Trinity Presbyterian Church, St. Albans, VT, rose to thank the presbyters over their expressions of love in the loss of his son to a drug overdose. Reflecting on the probable eternal estate of his son, Mr. Yost said, "We don't know what goes on in people's minds as they die, but I really have no hope. One of my greatest joys would be to discover in heaven that I was mistaken. God has kept us in hope, kept us from despair, kept us in love with Him. God is good-very good. . . . God does heal, God is faithful, and God is good."
