Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Okinawa-based special ops airman found dead in his off-base home

Recommended Posts


An 18-year veteran assigned to the 353rd Special Operations Group at Kadena Air Base was found dead last week in his off-base residence, officials said.

The body of Tech. Sgt. Don Sardin, 37, of the 1st Special Operations Squadron, was discovered Aug. 21, according to an Air Force statement issued Saturday. The cause of death was not known, but foul play is not suspected.

Okinawa police said they were aware of the incident but declined to comment and referred all inquiries to the U.S. military.

“It is never easy to say goodbye to a fellow Air Commando,” 353 SOG deputy commander Col. Kenneth McAdams said in the statement. “We will all miss Don dearly. He dedicated his life to the service of his nation.”

Sardin hailed from Chicago and served as an aviation resource management craftsmen who had most recently been designated noncommissioned officer in charge of squadron aviation resource management, said 353 SOG spokeswoman 1st Lt. Renee Douglas. He had deployed seven times and was awarded the Air Force Achievement Medal in 2004 and the Air Force Commendation Medal in 2016.

A memorial service is planned for 10 a.m. Wednesday at Kadena’s Chapel One. Air Force officials said they were unable to provide information about Sardin’s survivors.
