We had a nice conversation at the beginning of this week in Lorie Swisher’s home in Idaho Falls, getting some earlier city history behind the Christian Center, the Family Bible Church, and the River of Life. The pastor during those days was Rick Lunsford, who is currently connected with Gratefully Grafted Ministries International. His son, Shane Lunsford, and I knew each other back in the day.
I learned about some of the city-wide events, the prayer meetings seeking the welfare of the city, and the Upper Room coffee shop.
I listened to two things connected with Lorie:
1. She graciously gave to me a couple CDs of the music - Things Above.
2. The Youtube video – Heaven, composed before Eric Swisher went to heaven.
