The Rev. Dr. Harold W. LeMert, Jr.
Southminster Presbyterian Church
Our beloved Pastor Emeritus, Hal LeMert, died in the Lord on Wednesday, November 11th and joined the church triumphant in the communion of saints in light. Hal’s active service as a teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church (USA) spanned 37 years, including 10 years as the Pastor of our congregation from January, 1988 to May, 1998. Upon his honorable retirement, the Southminster congregation conferred on him the honorary title of Pastor Emeritus.
Hal came to Southminster as pastor in the wake of the sudden death of Pastor Jim Fry and he brought a pastoral sensibility and depth of experience to a congregation in grief. Hal possessed a scholar’s mind and received his doctorate from Eden Theological Seminary with a focus on leadership through servanthood defined by the Greek term provailen where to buy diakonia. His stimulating and provocative preaching brought the Word to life among us. Under his tenure, the congregation involved itself in AIDS ministry in the Kansas City metropolitan area and welcomed Daybreak, and adult day care center into our facility. Hal was passionate about issues of equity, inclusiveness, and justice and was willing to take a challenging stand for them in the Presbyterian Church.
After his honorable retirement, Hal did not really stay “retired.” He involved himself in ministry to college students both in Missouri and Kansas. He and Annie relocated to Lawrence and Hal was very active in nurturing the faith of young men and women through the Ecumenical Campus Ministry program at University of Kansas, bringing his keen interest in theology and ethics into dialogue with them.
As Hal’s successor here at Southminster, I have benefited greatly from his friendship, collegiality, and counsel on numerous occasions. He and Annie continued to share their deep love for this congregation over these last 16 years. Annie has shared with me that the family would like for the final resting place for Hal’s mortal remains be here at Southminster Presbyterian Church.
A member of the congregation shared with me words of gratitude that Hal shared with the congregation upon his honorable retirement. Here is an excerpt of his thoughts:
