At my wedding, 30 years ago, Elana and I were honored that one of the most famous Messianic worship groups performed. Of course, they were our dear friends Israel’s Hope. Marc Chopinsky wrote most of the music. Yesterday, we buried him in Haifa.
Marc died suddenly on Sunday morning. Next to his body was a hymnal that he must have been reading when he collapsed, opened to the song, “I believe in Jesus.”
As I was driving home, Israel received her first rain since Spring…something that is always seen as a sign of blessing. I have to believe that God was telling us that Marc was now with him. I shared some thoughts from my car.
