Mr. Tony Snow, RIP

Tony Snow, former White House Press Secretary and Fox News Anchor died this morning from colon cancer. He was 53 years old.

Last July Tony wrote an article for Christianity Today reflecting on the spiritual lessons he was learning through his struggle with cancer. Here's an excerpt:

"I don't know why I have cancer, and I don't much care. It is what it is—a plain and indisputable fact. Yet even while staring into a mirror darkly, great and stunning truths begin to take shape. Our maladies define a central feature of our existence: We are fallen. We are imperfect. Our bodies give out.

"But despite this—because of it—God offers the possibility of salvation and grace. We don't know how the narrative of our lives will end, but we get to choose how to use the interval between now and the moment we meet our Creator face-to-face."

May Tony's soul rest in peace, and may his family be comforted...
