Remembering the Internet Monk, Michael Spencer

by Tony K on April 6, 2010 · 3 comments

I just caught the news across the web tonight that the man we called iMonk has passed away. I only met him twice, but I was impressed with his devotion to Jesus. We ate together at Olive Garden, hung around my favorite coffee shop, then hit a used bookstore. He talked much about his now adult children, baseball, and Jesus-shaped spirituality.

His blog helped me examine many of my religious beliefs from a new point of view. In the end his words help me become a better Christian. I get the feeling that thousands of others would say the same.

In October 2008, I recorded a podcast Michael for our blog. It might be a good way to remember him this week. I think I’ll listen to a few minutes tonight and say a prayer for his family.

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast, again…

Christ was certainly at the center of his heart and ministry. I am very thankful for his life.

May our prayers be with his family and friends.

Thank you for posting the link to Michael’s testimony on your podcast. I hadn’t heard that before.
