The Life of Pastor Taylor Boone

In the days since Pastor Taylor Boone died on September 15, I have heard from so many experiencing an acute sense of shock and loss that I have personally felt as well. Taylor provided vital leadership in the creation and growth of Corazon Ministries at Travis Park Church. He faithfully connected as one of our associate pastors with Corazon guests and volunteers, always with a gentle smile over food and Scripture and recovery support, up through his retirement in 2017. I am so glad he joined in worship with us on July 11 to celebrate Travis Park’s 175th anniversary and the work of Corazon, and I encourage you to listen to the last sermon he ever preached, that day here.

Some may not know that Pastor Taylor also had an illustrious legal career alongside his call to ordained ministry. Taylor was instrumental in the formation of Methodist Healthcare Ministries and its ongoing commitment across South Texas to health care for the poor and marginalized. If you did not get the chance to know Taylor, give thanks that his legacy and support live on in our commitment to all people, in our collective need of the homecoming with God and people that Taylor is now experiencing in God’s eternal embrace. Taylor exemplified the ministry God has called us to share, where all means all from the most privileged to the most marginalized. We need each other, and we are a gift from God to one another.
 
Please keep Taylor’s wife Alison, daughters Catherine and Virginia, and their family in prayer. Join us, together with Bishop Robert Schnase, in celebrating Taylor’s life and the hope of our resurrection in Christ in a memorial service at Travis Park Church on Saturday, October 2 at 3:30pm, with reception to follow at the San Antonio Country Club. You’re also encouraged to share in the service via an online live streaming option, which you can find in his Porter Loring obituary here.
 
Memorial contributions can be made to Corazon San Antonio, Clarity Child Guidance Center, Planned Parenthood South Texas, or anywhere where you can extend the generosity Taylor modeled for all of us.
 
With hope and thanksgiving,
Pastor Eric
