  • One of my favorite illustrations: But I remember, I think best of all a Christmas story that doesn’t even involve any of my family and this morning I am going to tell it to you, probably for the fifth or sixth time but I believe in it is the real meaning of Christmas. It was Christmas Eve morning when Jay Robertson, who at that time was my Pastor, called me. The night before Jay, Brenda, Donna, myself, and the other deacons of Pittsburg Ave. Baptist had delivered several Christmas baskets to needy families. Jay called and asked me that since I had helped make up the baskets could I remember what we had put in them. I told him that I could and he then asked if I would meet him at the local grocery store where the church had an account and help him put together a basket for one more needy family. I told him that I would be glad to and we made arrangements to meet there about 11 Am. When we got there we took a basket and began to put everything in it that I could remember we had in the other baskets. We went down aisle after aisle while I tried to remember everything, there was a sack of potatoes, a ham, some dried beans, some sugar, and all kinds of canned goods. When we got to an aisle where there was some Christmas candy Jay said that at Christmas every kid should have some candy and put several different bags of candy in the basket. When we got to the cookies I commented that if he could get the kids candy I could get them cookies and put two or three packages of cookies in the basket. After checking out Jay and I went to deliver this stuff to the family. The Father had been in the hospital and just got out the day before and couldn’t work right then. The Mother had been out of work for several months and had been taking care of the kids and Dad had been in the hospital for like two weeks and hadn’t worked for several weeks before that. When we got to the house Mom was gone, on Christmas Eve for a job interview. Dad was on the phone with someone trying t0 get a job. So the oldest of three kids, a little girl of about 7 answered the door and after Dad heard who we were she let us bring in the food. The other two children a girl about 5 and a boy about four were watching. The boy held the door open for us as Jay and I both made two or three trips carrying in sacks of groceries. The oldest girl, acting like a little momma began to unpack the groceries so they could put them up. When, just as Jay and I came in with the last bags, she found the cookies and candy she cried out” Look Mary we’ve got chocolate!” It really filled my heart with tears of emotion as the other two kids ran over to the table to see what they had! Jay and I had realized the true meaning of Christmas!
  • Family: Wife of 35 years Donna who is my ministry partner and leads the music at the church. One grown son in another state one grown daughter who is single mother of three beautiful grandkids(2boys and 1 girl) My Mother lives about 130 miles away but she, my brother, and my sister all receive tapes of our services and listen to them and pass them along to others.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My dad before he passed away and my Mom still listens to everyone of my sermons on tape and passes them along to other folks in Houston to listen too. They both have told me numerous times how proud they were of me.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: She is my partner and always lets me know when I do good but is slow to criticize because she doesn’t want to discourage me!
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Let God do all the talking!
  • Books that have had an impact: Rick Warrens Purpose driven Church, several Max Lucado books and Billy Graham’s biographie
  • Hobbies: Working for a living to support my ministry and deerhunting
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God is pure love and waiting on you to come home to him!
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: We were babysitting with my 2 year old grandson one Sunday and when I started my sermon he decided that he needed to be right up front and came walking up and went between my legs and aunder the podium and was walking and crawling all over up front while I was preaching.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He was a true servant of GOD and JESUS!
