Death of Mr. Jean Carion

[with comments]     Filed under CoG Potpourri

Rees Ellis wrote me today from Belgium: "My father-in-law, Jean Carion died peacefully in his sleep this morning, Friday February 15th 2008. Thank you all for your prayers and words of encouragement over the past years." Mr. Carion was the pastor of the Worldwide Church of God congregation in Brussels, but he and his congregation separated from WCG in 1993 over doctrinal differences. They were then part of the Global Church of God. In recent years they were not aligned with any of the larger Church of God organizations, but were always hospitable to guests, including Mr. Roderick Meredith, who visited last November, and recent guests from United. I extend heartfelt condolences to Rees and Fanny.

Comment from Kenneth Griswold:

"I was saddened to hear of the death of Mr. Carion. I was in Belgium for the feast several years back and he gave an excellent sermon. I really appreciated Rees and Fanny’s hospitality along with the rest of the European brethren."
