Very sad news for Anglicans and all faithful believers everywhere, reported by Lee Gattiss of the Church Society.
I'm sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but our good friend and faithful minister of the gospel, John Richardson, died this morning after recent illness. Please do pray particularly for his wife Alison at this tremendously sad time.And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!” (Revelation 14:13)
John, AKA "The Ugley Vicar" was a member of Church Society Council, and one of the founders of JAEC (the Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference). He has now gone to be with the Lord he served so well, to receive the "Well done, good faithful servant" he looked forward to so much.
