For us, this news is yet another reminder of the brevity of life and the importance of what we feel called to do here at francisschaefferstudies.org. One of the motivations behind the Legacy Project is to capture something of "the story" before it is lost in the present life to the passing of a generation. It is our duty in a "abnormal world," as Schaeffer called it, to preserve something of the memories of what God has done in the lives of real people. Not for their sake alone, but for the sake of the Gospel. Yet further, not to merely preserve, but to imitate what God has wrought.
- Brothers, join in imitating me, and keep your eyes on those who walk according to the example you have in us. (Philippians 3:17 ESV)
