I found out today that D. James Kennedy died yesterday. Kennedy was the founder and pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and founder of Coral Ridge Ministries. From a press release:
Founder and Senior Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church Succumbs to Complications from Cardiac ArrestDo pray for him. I first became familiar with him via television some time before I was received into the Catholic Church. I continued to follow some of his work and programs even after that time. What can I say? He practiced what he preached.
Dr. D. James Kennedy, founder and senior pastor for 48 years of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church (CRPC) in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., passed away peacefully in his sleep at approximately 2:15 a.m. at his home with his wife and daughter by his bedside, following complications from a cardiac event last December. He was 76.
Grant him eternal rest, O Lord. Let your perpetual light shine upon him.
