I saw jets of light shining from cities and villages, and from the high places and the low places of the earth. God's word was obeyed, and as a result there were memorials for Him in every city and village. His truth was proclaimed throughout the world. --Testimonies, vol. 9, pp. 28, 29. {ChS 112.2}

Memorial Service for Pastor Gordon Smedley

Ed and Pastor Gordon Smedley perched on the summit of Mt. Albert Edward (near Courtenay BC - Aug. 2006)
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award me on that day-- and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing. ~2 Timothy 4:7 & 8

Yesterday, on a beautiful hot July day, family and friends of Pastor Gordon Charles Smedley (July 22, 1934 - July 6, 2008) gathered for a memorial service at the Comox Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church. The family had assembled a lovely little Memorial booklet detailing some of the highlights and accomplishments of Gordon's life. You can look at it (and print it out) by clicking the following:
