After ministering at Bishop Weakley’s funeral services on Friday, my family and I took a couple of days off to rest and renew ourselves. It has been some time since we were able to do this, but I can assure you that it was long overdue.

During this time of reflection, I had several times of weeping and then rejoicing that my spiritual dad has gone to heaven. While we have thousands of instructors in our life, we don’t have many spiritual fathers. That is what Bishop Weakley was to me and so many others…a spiritual father. I want to be that type of man.
