It is my solemn duty to report to you that our brother and teacher, Dr. Kenneth Bailey, retired member of the presbytery, died last evening (May 23, 2016) in Grove City, surrounded by his immediate family and some close friends. There will be so much more to say in the coming days, in so many gatherings in our common life, about Ken’s legacy in our ministries. For now, let us hold in prayer wife Mickey, daughter Sarah, son-in-law Victor, daughter-in-law Leslie, and grandchildren Kelcey and Cameron … even as we hold on to and hold up the good hope of the resurrection.
The Service of Witness to the Resurrection, remembering Dr. Kenneth Bailey, New Testament scholar and honorably retired member of the presbytery, will be held Friday, June 3, at 1pm at Trinity Presbyterian Church, downtown Mercer, Pa. We anticipate recording the service and making it available online after the fact. Details about those arrangements will follow, as appropriate.
