As we are sending this issue of Weavings to the printer, we are celebrating the life of Rueben Job, and mourning his passing. Rueben was World Editor of The Upper Room and a bishop in The United Methodist Church. He has also served on the advisory board of Weavings since its inception. We will miss his wise counsel and his gentle spirit.

"I have no anxiety about my own death. ... I don't know what that's going to be like, but I have some idea that it will be good because this life is good," said retired Bishop Rueben P. Job after the publication of his book, "Living Fully, Dying Well,'' in 2006. Job died at home Jan. 3 at 86 after a long struggle with heart disease.
He was a bishop, pastor, author and friend who was not afraid of death and wanted the church to be better prepared to help people deal with the experience of dying. In talking about his book, Job offered the best words of comfort about his own death.
Belmont United Methodist Church announced funeral arrangements for Job. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. to noon CST Saturday, Jan. 17, at the Iris Room of the Nashville church. The service will take place at 2 p.m. CST Sunday, Jan. 18, in Belmont's sanctuary. "Bishop Job has been a spiritual mentor for people around the world," said San Francisco Area Bishop Warner H. Brown Jr., president of the United Methodist Council of Bishops.
Salley worked with Job on "Living Fully, Dying Well" and "Three Simple Rules" in addition to other books published by Abingdon Press.
Upon hearing that gifts and commitments for the endowed chair had reached the $2 million goal in 2013, Job said, "Because Christian spirituality has been at the center of my ministry for 60 years, the faithful prayers and actions of many bring great hope and joy to me today and will do so for multitudes in the years to come. My prayers of petition have turned to prayers of thanksgiving." A lifetime of preaching Rueben Phillip Job was born Feb. 7, 1928, in Jamestown, North Dakota. He was raised on a farm and worked alongside his father until he received a "clear and urgent call" to ministry. He was licensed to preach in 1952, and ordained in the Dakota Conference of the Evangelical United Brethren Church in 1957. The EUB and the Methodist Church merged in 1968 to form The United Methodist Church. Job served as an Air Force chaplain from 1960 to '62. He was also a district superintendent in South Dakota and pastor of churches in North and South Dakota. Job was elected to the episcopacy and assigned to the Iowa Area in 1984. He was world editor of The Upper Room devotional magazine and a staff member of the United Methodist Board of Discipleship. He served as president of United Methodist Communications Commission in 1988. During the 1985-88 quadrennium, he chaired the Hymnal Revision Committee culminating in the adoption of a new hymnal at the denomination's 1988 General Conference. Mary Brooke Casad, former top executive of the denomination's Connectional Table, worked on the committee with Job and remembers him introducing the hymnal to the worldwide conference.
In a tribute to Job at the Publishing House, Salley ended a presentation with a quote from Job's "Life Stories," a book compiled for Garrett-Evangelical for establishing the chair.
