Thank you for this, Michael. I do not read the forum as often as I used to and only just now read this news. Dr. Beekmann was Seminary President when I served on the board, and also when Larry and I served as members of the President's Cabinet. Such a wise and wonderful man of faith. May he rest in glory.
