    I actually learned a lot in Personal Evangelism class. I use many of his illustrations in my soul winning presentation today. I have also used several items in "How to Win Souls and Influence People for Heaven" as I have taught adult Sunday School.
    The difference between better and bitter is "I".

    Sarcasm is the body's natural defense against stupid.

    I worked for him all four years I was at HAC. He and Mrs. Godfrey both had a part in my wedding.

    He purchased my books for me several semesters that I was there. Often, when he'd get ready to leave for the day, he'd pull out $3 to $5 and tell me to get some ice cream with a friend.

    He and Mrs. Godfrey "took" me to the Valentine Banquet one year. (Yes, I sat right up in the faculty and staff section with them, since I didn't have a date that year.) I didn't have a formal dress to wear, so Mrs. Godfrey took me home with her one afternoon to try on and pick out one of her daughters' dresses to wear.

    I will say - and my husband does too - that from time to time, we both still use some of the illustrations we learned in his Personal Evangelism class. It's not always while we're out soul winning; sometimes it's in our teaching or even just trying to help a Christian understand something.

    Once, when I was sick but wouldn't go to the infirmary, Mrs. Grafton heard about it, sought me out, chewed me out, and put me under dorm arrest until the next morning when I was ordered to appear at the infirmary for the weekend. (She evidently didn't believe in the "Don't call in; crawl in" philosophy.) Bro. Godfrey went down to Peddler's Way and Liberty Square and bought me some juices, and other snacks and had someone deliver the package to my dorm room.

    We've used that one for VBS/ children's church, etc.

    You are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO predictable. I KNEW you would make a comment about that sentence; that's why I left it in there.

    It was rather weird sitting up there with all the faculty and staff. I don't think I said two words the whole evening. Food was good, though.

Don't know if anyone else noticed (or cared), but as a preacher myself, I recognized the text and outline right off. If I actually cared enough to check (which I didn't) I would have probably discovered that Jackie-boy had preached preached it first.

    BTW---was George Godfrey one of those who turned on Pope Jack I? or am I thinking of someone else.
    You can rest assured he hasn't been a HAC - Clown for over 20 years now!

    I personally think it is better that way. I think a pastor need to keep his behind in his own town and tend to the flock that God entrusted him with. ~ Originally posted by SLG

    Had a friend, just like Amnon, who Bro. Godfrey led his parents to the Lord, and the next day Mrs. John R. Rice, who was visiting the campus, asked the dad if he were a preacher! He disipled those converts well!

    Who could forget Brother Godfrey's shrill voice yelling, "Why, you ask Brother Godfrey, why?!!" only to be followed by a calm, soft, "Souls".

    Not I, I could not forget the "WHY???????"
