that’s a lot of preaching

By December 27, 2009Church

A friend of mine shared this note on Facebook and I thought I would pass it along to my blog readers.  It’s about a man who has been preaching for 70 years.  I’d just like to live to 70 years, much less preach for 70 years (at least I would have a pretty decent amount of material to draw from, assuming I could still remember it).

“This morning, the Sunset Ridge Church of Christ in San Antonio, Texas will recognize the remarkable occasion marking the seventieth year of preaching of Roy F. Osborne. I am blessed to be one of those influenced and mentored by Roy. I preach for a congregation he once served. I, like so many, have been touched by his ministry that began in Nashville, Tennessee, the last Sunday in 1939.”
