I have been alerted that my friend, predecessor, and the former Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Chattanooga TN, the 11th since 1838, Dr Ben Haden, went home to be with The Lord, this morning, at around 1:15. He preached Christ until the last out of his own sacred encounter with the resurrected Savior and faith in His Word.
He is survived by his daughter, Dallas, her husband, and a granddaughter. His beloved wife, Charlene, went before him, a few years ago, to be with Christ.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.- King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition
