Another Funeral and the end of a icon
Hal was a minister of music, who sang and his wife played piano. A number of friends in the ministry came to his burial service at the National Memorial Cemetery.
On the way home I decided to stop by the Central Christian Bookstore on Central. Now that light rail travels up and down Central, the street has a very cosmopolitan feel, but the years it took to build really took a toll on business. The Bookstore was empty, gone after decades of providing new and used books for the Christian population of greater Phoenix. I spent many hours mining for classics there. It is sad. I am afraid it points a bit to the demise of reading, and the devolution of evangelicalism as well. I hope not.
