Ed and Joyce were part of the LOGOS ministry at their church from the very beginning, in the late 80s. They were always involved—checking participants in, making phone calls or leading Bible study, and serving together as Table Parents. After Joyce passed, Ed continued to volunteer in LOGOS, to nurture one of his passions—gardening. The church established a community garden and Ed taught the children how to plant seeds, to maintain what grew, and to share their harvest with others.
Ed died peacefully at age 85 in his home in 2020, a year after his diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). His children thought it important to continue their dad’s practice of planting seeds in LOGOS by donating to GenOn—something they say is an easy and obvious decision because it furthers a cause that was personal and important to their parents. It’s an importance that was also planted in them—their daughter has a passion for LOGOS at her church. They know that their donation will continue to foster the same kind of relationships their parents had with people of all generations.
Will you continue to support GenOn’s mission as we partner with churches to nurture, grow, and deepen intergenerational Christ-centered community in a world that desperately needs this kind of community? Especially now, to help us all recover and reconnect as COVID wanes. If you donated early, thank you. If you can donate now, thank you.
We have a matching challenge for the first $17,000 donated by the end of the year, ($2,600 to go as of the last week of December!) thanks to the generosity of several donors. Will you give today to help us realize that match? Your donation to GenOn Ministries impacts the planting and growing of a life in Christ for current generations and many generations to come.
