John Stott died.

A great saint. Look forward to meeting him.

I've been amused by some of the fb comments.

MJ tells us not to say rest in peace. Instead we should affirm that Christ has conquered death.

MB says 'may he rest in peace and rise in glory'.

Another friend (NF) says he has a resurrection body now.

So, is he resting peacefully? Kind of. Maybe more like waiting than resting. Waiting for the rest that is to come when Jesus returns and he is given his resurrection body. And this waiting is kind of peaceful, but not completely. Remember the fallen saints in Revelation 6:10 praying 'How long till you avenge our blood...'

Does it matter? Not really.
