A Letter from Larger Story
It is with great sadness and astonishing joy that we tell you of Dr. Larry Crabb’s arrival in Heaven early Sunday morning. Heartache because we already miss him so much, and heartfelt delight because we each have a faint sense of just how much he is now enjoying the great celebration and perfect rest of life in the presence of the Trinity.
As one who taught so many of us that it is possible to trust no matter our circumstances or condition of soul, Larry can now testify to the unspeakable joy and unlimited goodness of God. It truly is well with his soul.
Rachael, Kep, Ken and the family are grieving together and want you to know that they are well. They are planning two memorial services, one in Charlotte and one in Denver for mid- April and both of those will be livestreamed at LargerStory.com. We will send more details as these plans are finalized. The Crabb family is grateful for the outpouring of love and support that you have offered to them and appreciate your patience as they navigate this season together.
The Larger Story team also requests your patience as we work to fulfill orders from our store during this time of disruption. We will get those items to you as soon as we can and we apologize for the slight delay as we adapt to our current situation.
During his long and fruitful life, Larry Crabb ushered so many into a new and more vibrant life with the Trinity, and now his death is continuing to stir us to become more fully alive to the future waiting for us in heaven:
3-5 What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.
6-7 I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory. 1 Peter 1:3-7
Larry lived his life firmly anchored in the truth of this scripture, and now he is healed and whole and his lifelong faith points us all to the certainty of God’s great victory. What an honor to be part of his legacy.
