Obituary: The Rev. James L. Johnson

The Rev. James L. Johnson, husband of Edith Tesch Johnson, joined the heavenly church triumphant June 29 after a time of illness.  Jim served as associate pastor and then pastor of Little Church on the Lane, in Charlotte, N.C. from 1959 to 1972,  followed by 27 years of community leadership with United Family Services in Charlotte.

In 2002, Jim was recognized for his ministry to the needs of families and his community in receiving the John Hus Award from Moravian Theological Seminary.

A funeral service was held July 27, 2013, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Charlotte.  We give thanks for Jim’s  life and witness.  Please hold his wife, Edith, their children and extended family in prayer.  The Moravian Daily Texts for June 29 include the following:  “When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who watch over my way.” (Psalm 142:3)

Tuesday, April 24 — Psalm 54
Leviticus 16:26–18:5; Mark 6:7–13

Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Psalm 36:5

God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4–5

How sweet, God of Easter, are the promises which you bestow on us: your immeasurable love. Your grace which saves us. Your gift of new life in Christ. Accept our grateful shouts of thanks and praise! Amen.
