Remembering Stephen Onnen

"Before the Lord, death is not death at all. For us it is called and is death when we die. But before God it is a light sleep which could not be any lighter...If you can destroy my Christians, I can destroy you and recall them to life again." -- Martin Luther

Holy and righteous God!
Holy and mighty God!
Holy and all- merciful Savior!
Eternal Lord God!
Save us lest we perish:
In the bitter pangs of death,
Have mercy, O Lord!

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis!

Rest well, brother Stephen!
