Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.

Thomas Odom Logue, Jr. (1934-2008)

My Father died yesterday at his work. It was a massive heart attack which took him suddenly, but not unprepared in an eternal sense. He loved his work as a Civil Engineer (not that those two words go together) and was very happy to be still engaged in challenging and meaningful work at 73. While I know he would not have wanted to have died this young, he did want to die with his boots on, still fighting the good fight and keeping the faith and in that he suceeded.

I will be the co-celebrant and preacher at a memorial service this Sunday, February 24 at 2 p.m. at my father's church, St. Andrews Episcopal Church in Douglas, Georgia. A funeral service will follow on Saturday, March 1 at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Athens, Georgia at 2 p.m. My mother requests that in lieu of flowers, any memorials be made to King of Peace, a church he was proud of and enjoyed visiting.

peace,
Frank+
The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor
