Last night, at 11:15pm, the Lord saw fit to call Dr. Geoff Adams home to glory. A long time professor of Old Testament Biblical Theology, and former Principal of Toronto Baptist Seminary, Dr. Adams has had, through his students, a tremendous influence for the gospel around the globe.
When you read this post, please take a moment to praise God for the life of Dr. Adams. God alone raised him up for the challenges of our day. Dr. Adams’ legacy of faithfulness to Christ is an example to us all. Even in his last days at the hospital, he was engaged in deep conversations about Christ with the nurses and orderlies. In true Geoff Adams fashion, he had Doug bring gospel tracts written by T.T. Shields to pass out! He will be deeply and sorely missed! Yet what a great hope we have as Christians. That one day we, along with Dr. Adams and the countless others, will be with Christ in the New Heavens and New Earth!!
Please also remember Dr. Adams’ family, especially his wonderful wife Betty, as they go through this very trying time. May our great God of peace be with them as a comfort and encouragement.
The funeral celebration will be on Tuesday, August 15th, 2006. It will be held at Jarvist Street Baptist Church at 11am. Visitation will be on Monday the 14th at 7pm and 9pm. For more information call Jarvis Street Baptist Church at 416.925.3261.
