It is with great sadness that I write that regular MC contributor Michael Avramovich, a dear friend, devout Christian, and supporter of this ministry passed away the day before Thanksgiving. He will be greatly missed. He was a careful writer, sharp thinker, and one of the kindest men you could ever meet. His humor and friendly conversation with colleagues, students, friends, and so many others will not be forgotten. Among many other things, he was deeply concerned about the persecuted church. Michael’s deep personal faith in and love for his Lord shone through so much of his life. May his memory eternal!
