For those of you who had read the post on my blog about Adrian and how much his story and blog had touched my life you will know how sad this makes me. For those of who you who didn’t see it-I had written a post stating my concern for Adrian who had terminal cancer and the possibility that he may not know Christ. Adrian is from England and became a minor celebrity for his battle with cancer and raising awareness for the importance of donating bone marrow to those in need, but somehow he came across my silly, clumsy blog and read my my post about my desire for Adrian to know Christ before he passed away.
Here is what Adrian commented after reading my thoughts:Hi Kate, Hope you are well. This is Adrian (aka Baldy, Sudders) the author of Baldy’s Blog. Thank you for the reference to my blog I really appreciate that. I think one thing you need to understand is that in the UK we are much less open to the idea of shouting out about our politics or religion or faith. Culturally it’s just not what we do. However, I think at some point I will be posting about a few more specifics. I have recently been speaking to a lovely chaplain I met through hospital and the phrase “peace beyond peace” has been mentioned before now. I think, despite everything that has happened to me, I am privileged to be able to truly experience this. Keep reading! With best wishes, Adrian
I have kept up with Adrian’s blog but never saw anything pertaining to his beliefs and what he thought about life after death-or “peace beyond peace” as Adrian put it. In all honesty I don’t think I will ever know if Adrian accepted Christ before he died…and that makes me really sad and frustrated.
