Many are concerned about their SUV

Too few are concerned about the SVT – “Shout” of Christ, “Voice” of the archangel, “Trump” of God,

which will all take place BEFORE the saints are resurrected. (1Th 4.16-17)

You cannot live another’s life

Strive ever so hard, live ever so long

You can never feel their pain, or sing their song

You have your own terrific life to live

Your own personal niche to fulfill

Give it, Friend, all your ability

Give your great life all your force, free will

He who gave you your life, loves you still!

John F Dorsey was born 1/3/1916, in southern Ohio.  Dorsey entered the field of evangelism at a young age and stayed there until retirement, except for the 14(?) years he pastored at Mt Carmel (in greater Cincinnati).  He is a poet, theologian, and until entering the nursing home, a successful hunter (at least 30 big-game) and a gardener.  His book A Farmer Looks at the Parables should be read by every pastor and every man studying to be a pastor.  Glad he was our pastor for two years and that he dedicated our son Lincoln (together with the late Tim Dotson) in 1967.

Dorsey quote:

“Perfection is what God says about Himself; attributes are what man says about God.  God is not obligated to live up to these.”  – 7/23/98
