With all of Cincinnati and many around the world we mourn the death of Carl Lindner. But, we also rejoice in his going home to be with Jesus. Carl was a patriarch of promoting Cincinnati, programs good for our city, and the work of God in our area, I met him in 2000 when he took time to hear what God was doing through The Lord’s Gym and he began to support our annual breakfasts with matching funds. He continued right through this year, and we thank God for his life and his incredible generosity. The picture shows me and Anne as we received his first check. Also, note the image of the parade honoring Carl this morning as it drove through downtown Cincinnati and past the original site of the Lord’s Gym where men from the Gym paid their final respects.
