P  Paul Wood Finch has turned the tassel,

          “Graduated” today.  

A  A long time ago he started this school

          Called Narrow Way.

U  Untold millions have done this course, of free will,

          not of force.         

L  Learning and loving to learn,

          growing in Christ every day.               

W  Would you believe in Jesus also,

          have Him as your Friend?                  

O  Our brother’s life imitate?

          He’s found a fabulous “end.”

O  Or let me say “beginning,”

          (only earth-life has ending).

D  Dead?  Oh, no.  Much more alive

          than those who condolence send.       

 

F  Father of five, yet spiritually,

          many more are alive

I  In Ireland, Africa, and home,

          he has descendants dear.

N  No allowance Finch would make,

          for old carnality’s sake.

C  Clean hands and a pure heart

          are available “now and here.”

H  Holiness lead Finch to heaven. 

          Oh, follow in his wake!  -eab, 7/8/03

Penned in Phoenix, AZ, the day I heard of his death.

The home today is most fearfully attacked by satanic devices, for since the home is the source of life, to contaminate it is to pollute the stream of life that flows from the home into society.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 8.  

 

The home is the chief school of human virtues.    A Christian home is known by the fact that the Word of God is there, the fear of God is there, and parental authority is there.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 18.  

 

It is mainly in the home that the heart is opened, habits are formed, the intellect is awakened, and the character is molded for good or evil.

 — Character is property.  It is the noblest of possessions.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 23.  

 

You can outride the storms, outwit the devil, and outrun your enemies if you pay attention to building the right kind of character.

– Paul W. Finch, The World’s Greatest Need, (Belfast, Ireland: Nelson & Knox, 1954), 26.  

Paul Wood (mother’s maiden name) Finch was born this date (1/27/1910) in Aberdeen, OH.  He was a college professor and president, a missionary evangelist, a holiness preacher, and a man who knew Israel (visited it at least 12 times).  He was one of the greatest men I knew, knowing him from 1965 till his death in 03.
