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)
