By phone I just said good-bye to a great man who has become a good friend over the past decade. Chris Nobels and I have been on the Book of Praise committee since 2001 and we were both set to retire in 2016. It seems that Chris will be retiring a bit sooner as he is dying of cancer. It is well with his soul. May God be with him to the end and prepare for him a glorious entrance into His heavenly kingdom. May God comfort his wife Caroline, and his children and grandchildren.
Over the years Chris has composed much fine music, which you can find here at his webpage. He is leaving a wonderful legacy to the churches.
