"Father Jack"

Posted by H5O 1.0 FOREVER on December 27, 2016 at 10:45 AM


Remember “Father Jack,” the priest in “Engaged to Be Buried” (Season 5)? It turns out the actor who portrayed him, Bob Turnbull, was actually “the chaplain of Waikiki Beach” – but he didn’t start out that way.


Read his story:


Ellis, Mark. TV Actor Had Never Seen Anyone Pray, Planted First Church on Waikiki Beach. God Reports. May 12, 2016. http://blog.godreports.com/2016/05/tv-star-was-so-unchurched-he-had-never-seen-anyone-pray/


One error of note: The report says he "planted the first church on Waikiki." Of course, this is a misleading statement. St. Augustine by the Sea (Catholic) Church has been there since 1854. It stands on Ohua Street, between Kalakaua Avenue and the beach.

Wow, that was an inspiring story! Thanks for posting this. It is amazing how God can use ordinary people, like all of us. I always liked Father Jack. It's a shame that he was murdered. Perhaps if he hadn't been, he could have helped Alia in the aftermath of that whole mess.
