It was with great sadness that we recently learned of the death of Dr Jim Brooks, a past President of the Baptist Union of Scotland. Jim was a man who truly served his Lord with all his heart, soul, mind and strength throughout a very full life. He was a consummate scholar and scientist; a world-wide traveller; a sportsman; a family man; and above all, a committed Christian.
Jim served our Baptist family with great care, love, laughter, wisdom and determination and we are thankful to God for his life, which was dedicated to God in all the spheres he touched. Jim was someone who was always interested in and had time for those he met and he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Jan, and the family at this time.
