PAUL  WOOD  FINCH

P  Personally, met this prophet in the old Mid-west,

A  And liked him right away.     (We both Volkswagens had.)

U  Under three years later, we’re teaching together,

L  Led to Hobe, me a “rook,” him old enough for dad.

 

W  With the years, he’d come by Tennessee and invest

O  On young lives his ageless truth; “The Mid-east” he taught.

O  On my soul he left etchings, hungers for blessings.

D  Doubt he understood how much then, His mind I sought.

 

F  Few if any men I’ve “schooled with,” Have been more blest

I  In breadth of sharing pulpits, preaching ‘cross the globe.

N  Nor had more on their “shelf;” because he’d died to self. 

C  Commencements?  Shared some. His, long-awaited has come.

H  Happy Graduation, Sir!  What a spotless robe!

            – eab, 7/8/03   

Paul Wood Finch died this date 7/8/2003, Holland, Michigan (1:40 AM) He wrote at least two books Revival Messages, The World’s Greatest Need both published in Ireland. 

Bro. Finch is gone but a long way from being forgotten.  He was one of the most Godly men I ever knew.  And, had a holy balance much needed in his day – and as much (if not more needed today.

The above was sent to his funeral and (as I understand) was read by Leroy Adams, Jr.
