    "Ed Dobson, the former senior pastor at Calvary Church in Grand Rapids, has passed away. Dobson, who had been living with ALS for the last several years, died on Dec. 26. Calvary Church released a statement saying Dobson's funeral is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 31 at 11 a.m. in the church sanctuary. Current senior pastor, Jim Samra, says there is no visitation prior to or reception following the service."

    Sorry to learn this. When I was at BJU ('70-'72) Eddie Dobson won the student preaching contest with a very memorable message.

    While I disagree with aspects of his view of fundamentalism, I know he was a man of God. (I have his books In Search of Unity, and The Fundamentalist Phenomenon,with Ed Hindson and Jerry Falwell.)

    I hasten to add that I oppose his "seeker-sensitive" approach. (Forgot I had his book on that too, Starting a Seeker-Sensitive Service.) I think he went astray on that one.
