When Bill told me the news last month, it was stunning. I wasn’t prepared to hear that my good friend had been diagnosed with cancer.
All of us have been impacted by cancer, some more than others. I lost my sister, Diane, to lung cancer a few years ago. Over the course of my years serving as a pastor, I’ve seen the devastating impact of various forms of cancer as people I’ve known and cared about have lost loved ones — or as church members themselves afflicted with cancer have passed away.
