[Off Topic:] Tragedy at Baylor University

I don't usually blog concerning issues not related to intelligent design and evolution. However, this time, the impact of this event has been too great for the community here at Baylor University.

University Baptist Church (UBC) is a very popular church among students at Baylor. The senior pastor there, Pastor Kyle Lake, was performing a baptism service on Sunday, October 30, 2005 when the microphone accidentally fell into the baptistry. The student being baptised got out of the water okay, but Pastor Lake did not. Kyle Lake was electrocuted before his family and congregation. He died around 11:30 am, Central Time.

Kyle Lake leaves behind a young wife, three very young children, and a shocked congregation and Baylor community. Please pray for the Lake family, the UBC congregation, and the Baylor family as they mourn the loss of a devoted husband and father, and faithful pastor, and a wonderful friend.
