Anything not strictly "on topic" and of a positive nature in this thread will be deleted. "Bellevue friend" suggested this topic as a tribute to Dr. Rogers, and that's all it's for. Think about the online guestbook for Dr. Rogers' family which has grown to over 140 pages, and don't write anything here you wouldn't write there!
Since today is the one year anniversary of Dr. Rogers' homegoing I am wondering what is your most treasured memory of him?
For me, it was meeting him on four different occasions. He was the kindest of men! He always made you feel like you were the most important person in the world!
My most vivid memory was hearing him preach at Midwestern Seminary in Kansas City when they were installing their new president and had set up an outdoor tent that must have seated 1000 people or better.
At the beginning of his sermon, a terrble thunderstorm hit... they lost most of the power including his microphone. Undaunted, he left the platform and began walking back and forth down the aisle preaching like a modern day Billy Sunday!
I am so glad I had my whole family there... my wife and our three sons heard the "Greatest Preacher" of his generation... stand and deliver!
Write your most vivid memory in his honor!
Thank you for the idea for this thread, "bellevue friend"!
