Sad News from ApologetiX
Wed., Aug. 14. 2002 1:40pm EDT

J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX (That Christian Parody Band) here.

It's been a rough week for ApologetiX.

I am sad to report that our drummer Bill's mother, Mary, passed away Sunday evening at the age of 59. Regular readers of this newsletter know that she had been very, very sick and was not expected to make it. However, the family is still in shock. Bill's mother and her husband Charlie lived in the same house with Bill, his wife, Chris, and their three kids, Jacob (7), Rebecca (5) and Rachel (2). She had a strong faith in the Lord, but her loved ones are still devastated at the loss. I have more information about that below.

In addition, my wife, Lisa, and three-month-old daughter, Heather, were in a serious two-car accident on the Western Kentucky Parkway on Monday. They are O.K., and the driver of the other vehicle appears to be fine, but our new van sustained major damage (almost totaled) and is still in Kentucky. We praise God that neither one was hurt, although it was extremely traumatic experience for Lisa, who saw the accident happening and was afraid they wouldn't survive.

Consequently, the five ApologetiX concerts that were scheduled for tonight through Sunday (two in PA, one in AL, one in NC and one in WV) have been postponed.

Our booking agent, Kathleen Burke, is making every effort to get the concerts rescheduled for as soon as possible (some possibly within the next week or two), so if you were planning to attend, please stay tuned. I should have the new dates for you very soon.

In the one piece of good news we have for you this week, our seventh CD, "Grace Period," is supposed to ship from the factory today, which means it should be in your local store some time next week.

If you are from the Pittsburgh area and would like to attend the viewing or the funeral for Bill's mom, here is the information:

VIEWING:

Thursday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.
Friday from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.

Freyvogel Funeral Home
4900 Centre Ave
Pittsburgh PA
(Shadyside/Oakland/Bloomfield section) 412-621-1665


FUNERAL SERVICE:

Saturday at 10 a.m.

East Liberty Presbyterian
116 S. Highland Ave
Pittsburgh PA (East Liberty section)
412-441-3800

If you'd like to email Bill, his email address is bill@apologetix.com. I'm sure he is pretty much at la oss for words right now, but I wanted to share with you a brief tribute he wrote to his mother this past Mother's Day before things got really bad and it became apparent that she wouldn't make it.

"Its hard sometimes to look back at myself as a teenager and the relationship I had with my mother and not come away with the feeling that I have just kicked a puppy. As you may or may not know, my father died when I was 5 and my mother raised three unruly children by herself balancing it between a full time job/ministry and college. To improve our situation and help secure our future she relied on faith and family.

"With that as a role model, its hard to believe that I went in the direction that I did. I disregarded her authority, abused her generosity and trampled her dignity. After years of God constantly answering her prayers for me she looks at me now as a cross between the man she had always hoped I would become and the faultless baby she brought into the world. She holds NONE of it against me. After all, she is my mother and I am now more than ever, her loving son."

Please pray for Bill and his family.

Rom 8:23 (TLB)
And even we Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, also groan to be released from pain and suffering. We, too, wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as his children, including the new bodies he has promised us-- bodies that will never be sick again and will never die.
