Glimpses of  Greatness

Was he married?

 Who was he, really?

 Who were his contemporaries?

 What was he like out of the pulpit?

 What about his prayer life?

 Where was he born?

 Where did his travels take him?

 When did she teach?

 When did he write that?

 Why did she have that impact?

 Why was he so successful?

 What about his sense of humor?

 Glimpses of Greatness can answer some of the above and can tell you a bit more.  It is Edgar Bryan’s attempt to share personal insights in the lives of fifty-four (54) people he has personally heard and/or knew.

“…We have in the holiness Movement the practice of such things as mixed-bathing, wearing of all sorts of brief attire, movie viewing (at home and in theaters), public sports participation, etc. and no one is supposed to utter a protest…” [1]

“Trying to find where some holiness preachers stand on some issues it like trying to hold down an eel on a slippery rock.” [2]

“…Many are fooled by the liberal holiness preacher’s terminology…‘worldliness’…he in no real sense means…”  [3] 

Steve D. “S. D.” Herron died this date, 2/25/1994 at Charlotte, North Carolina.  He founded Hobe Sound Bible College in 1960.  Early HSBC board members included H. Robb French, C. Ponder Frederick, Mrs. Ella Zuch, Glenn Griffeth, and Andrew Whitney.

Herron was one of the greatest Christian educators of his time.

The devil has no roads, he always travels God’s roads and corrupts them.

 

The convictions that really count are not the convictions you hold [but] the convictions that hold you.

 

God’s commands to pray are really veiled personal letters inviting us into His presence.

 

We only enjoy what we share.

 

It takes God time to make a man.

 

             – Steve Herron quotes – from various sermons 

Stephen Douglas Herron died this date (2/25/1994) in Charlotte, NC.  (His signature was “Steve D. Herron.” )  His vision started Hobe Sound Bible College and Wesleyan Education Association of America. 

He was one of the greatest men I ever knew – the greatest man for whom I worked.  I consider him my educational father.  Probaly no man have I missed more than I have the late, great Steve Herron.

Years have now past since He was seen last,

In Jerusalem or Bethany.

His step in the land, is not on the sand,

At Jordan or blue Galilee.

 

Some men have said (they’re long since dead)

That He would be forgot.

Where are they now – who were they, anyhow?

I’d like to tell them a lot.

 

That Life has changed, that Influence ranged,

To men of every clime.

And even the date, is not by fate,

But according to His time.

 

He didn’t publish a book, notes He never took;

A few sermons He gave,

On justice and peace, joy that will not cease,

And, words on how to behave.

 

His travel was small, not far at all,

His life – an untimely end.

But enough to reach, ole time to breach

Centuries, the story to send.

 

So there in part, weak rhyme, less art,

Are thoughts on my Lord.

This season of the year, praise to Him so dear

The Living Eternal Word.          -eab, 12/1968

 

Written while teaching literature at Hobe Sound Bible College when, Steve D Herron was president.
