Former Crystal Lake Methodist Minister Dies

Word has reached me that one of my former ministers at the First United Methodist Church of Crystal Lake has died in Florida.

The Rev. James Paulson was 84 and expired in Cape Coral.

He wrote about conducting my sister Jan’s wedding in his autobiography, observing that the baptism of my soon-to-be brother-in-law Mike Peters was one of the highlights of his career. Read why in the story I’ve linked to above.

The autobiography is entitled,

“My Trip Home”

That journey is now completed.

  1. WOW! I remember my father doing this. I did not realize that it was your brother in law, Jan. What a fond memory and a beautiful photograph of my father giving baptism. Thanks for remembering. Sincerely, John Paulson
