Pastor John Warner of Crerar Presbyterian goes home to be with the Lord

Pastor John Warner was the longtime Pastor of Crerar Memorial Presbyterian Church . According to the son of a recent guest preacher (and who worked at Crerar himself), Pasotr Warner had broken his neck, and had been out for some time (explaining the number of guest preachers in recent weeks), but finally went home to be with the Lord a few days ago.

The Chatham Avalon Park Community Council blog had a brief entry on Thursday

Condolences to the family of Pastor John Warner the longtime Pastor of Crerar Presbyterian Church 8100 S. Calumet.Pastor Warner was an active Pastor at a progressive Church, Crerar. When ever the pastor would say " The doors of the church are open" it was truly meant. Numerous block clubs, community organization, accepted his hospitality, beyond that, Pastor Warner was a quite storm that provided both inspiration and direction to his church and our community, he will be greatly missed.

What's next for Crerar? I live literally down the block, and am interested in not just the history of Crerar (which added to the building as recently as 1989) , but also the future.

As a side note, Natalie Moore, reporter for WBEZ (Chicago Public Radio) was a part of Crerar and knew Pastor Warner well. (She honored him in her latets Facebook status).
