This Pastor was A-OK, NOT SHAMEFUL, in my book. For goodness sakes!!!
I don't know him or his church, but he obviously cares enough to realize that there may be a POSSIBILITY that some of Bryce's fellow students/family members or other people who knew this young man may need spiritual and/or religious guidance to understand his untimely death. With death of someone close, people search their souls. I hope YOU never need to have someone be KIND, and OUTREACH to YOU, but if you do, this PASTOR will probably be the ONE and only who will be there to accept you.
A lot of people who are "unchurched" don't have a clue where to turn when they need to turn to God and/or a religious mentor. This Pastor was just being a 'man of the cloth', doing what God would expect of him.
Try to see things in a "positive" light. We know how easy it is for our secular society to HATE and create DISCORD to any one of God's loving Apostles.
In all sincerity, I say, "thanks Pastor" and to our blogger, I am sincere as I say, "God Bless You and Keep You." In His Name!
