We used to do a "Sonrise" service on Easter morning just before sunrise. My pastor moved and started another church and we were between pastors for over a year and the new guy had never done one so there were a couple years there where we didn't do it.
One of the grumpy tell-it-like-it-is old guys (great friend of mine) grouched to me one spring about not having the Sonrise services anymore so I mentioned it to pastor and we did it again for the first time in a few years- last year. Well, a month or so my grumpy old friend went home to be with the Lord. We did Sonrise service again this year, but I missed old Clarence and I told his widow so.
The sign outside my church says, "Precious to the Lord is the death of His saints," right now.
