“Keep Eternity Before the Children”

Gentlemen,

Dallas Willard’s mother died when he was only two years old.  Her final words to her husband were: “Keep eternity before the children.”

This morning, Dallas went home to be with the Lord at age 77, after battling pancreatic cancer for several months.  His writings have certainly focused my attention on eternity in ways that no one else ever has before.  He is now experiencing first-hand new realities of his eternal existence!

Dallas Willard

John Ortberg, who pastors Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, has skillfully written a touching tribute to Dallas, entitled: Dallas Willard, a Man from Another ‘Time Zone’ which is well worth the time you will invest to read it.  Read the article online by clicking on John’s name, or download this article by clicking on the title.

Additionally, seven video messages are available for viewing from a February conference, Knowing Christ,” held at Westmont College in Santa Barbara.
