cowboys, cows, and boots

By October 9, 2009Church

This post is from a friend of mine who preaches for a church in San Francisco.  It was on his Facebook page:

Some time ago one of our girls was asked “what does your Dad do?” She replied: “He is a preacher; he sits in his office and talks on the phone or drives around a lot and makes speeches.” John Wayne had a line about would be cowboys … “they are all boots and no cows.” A title claimed or awarded is not earned until the work has been done, the lives have been changed and the peace is won.

I love the John Wayne line about cowboys … all boots and no cows.
