Gaither Misses Canada Concert, Doctor Advised Rest

According to a Gaithernet Health update issued today, Bill Gaither is resting per Doctor’s advice. Gaither has been under careful supervision of his heart doctors the last year and a half. A few months ago he had a stent replacement and is still not feeling 100% better. Under doctor’s advice he is not making the trip to Canada. He has been instructed to stay home and rest until doctors determine the next steps.”I still have a lot of living to do,” Bill says, “and though it is always difficult for me to miss concerts, I know I haven’t been operating at full-strength. I’m also realizing that it is going to take some time for me to get there. So, I’ll spend this summer doing whatever the doctors ask me to do and I have every reason to believe that they will have me running on all cylinders for the Alaskan Cruise and Fall Homecoming Tour. I would appreciate your prayers during the days and weeks to come, both for wisdom and for patience to trust the process.” This weekend’s program will be under the management of Guy Penrod and Kevin Williams.

Hmm.. Sounds like the writing is on the wall for retirement…

I’m not saying that in a mean-spirited way at all, but it is a very real possibility. All I can say is, will the Homecoming continue after he’s retired or passed on? Hmm..
