Joe Medicine Crow has passed away at the age of 102 on Sunday, April 3. What you may not know, or hear from the news, is that he was a long-time member of the First Crow Indian Baptist Church in Lodge Grass, MT. His pastor of many years, David Lopez, told me that when he first came to the church Joe was the church moderator. Joe held other leadership positions in the congregation and was active until more recent years as his failing health slowed down his involvement. Not only has a national treasure passed from the scene, our brother in Christ, who has left his mark on the living with his faith and life, is now in the presence of his Master receiving his award. The funeral honoring his life takes place on Wednesday, April 5, at the church. ~ Charles Revis
