“Let us depart from this place in peace, and as we go on our way, forget not the poor, pray for the sick, make no peace with oppression, and love one another as Jesus has loved us. And the Blessing of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, be upon you and upon all God’s people this day and forevermore. Amen.”
The (Late) Right Reverend Furman (Bill) Stough, Eighth Bishop of Alabama
Note: I was ordained Deacon & Priest by that good man. He was an evangelist at heart. He taught me about being a man, especially a man of God. I miss him regularly. Rest in Peace, Your Grace. I will see you in due season, a source of joy to me.
