ORIGINS 4

A picture is worth a 1000 words or more.

Last week I was given a small box of my grate grandfathers sermon notes.

From what I can tell Alex Smith preached these sermons in the 1950’s.

I am really looking forward to reading each message as a part of my morning devotions this month.

Kind of cool …. my great grandfather and I get to spend the mornings together having coffee and discussing the gold nuggets he found.

This photo is of Alex smith in front of his church in Rifle Colorado. Man I would love to be able go back in time and be in some of those services. Can you imagine attempting to hold services every night but Saturday in today’s culture?  (I can hear the crickits already).

Even if I cannot hear the living voice of Alex Smith ringing out from the pulpits that he spoke from, I am at least able to read his sermons and other writings to enjoy the fruits of his wonderful ministry 60 years later.

“He speaks even though he is dead.”  Hebrews 11:4 (nirv)

Thank God for paper and the typewriter.
