Larry Norman, "the father of Christian Rock", died on Sunday.
This news saddens me. I had the honor of attending one of his concerts several years ago. He was simple person with a simple, yet profound message. And he was really funny.
On his website,he posted a final message to everyone that included these words:
"I feel like a prize in a box of cracker jacks with God's hand reaching down to pick me up. I have been under medical care for months. My wounds are getting bigger. I have trouble breathing. I am ready to fly home."
Here is a tribute video someone did of Larry - singing my favorite song, "I am a servant."
Goodbye Larry. We may mourn, but Heaven is rejoicing.
