I asked two special friends from George’s and my long-ago days in seminary to write a blog for Advent for another point of view than mine. Both of these men were George’s roommates while he was in seminary.
Wayne Barnett and George were friends from CYF Conference (summer church camp) and all through college. Wayne and his wife LaDonna were parts of our lives for many years. George performed their wedding and Wayne was George’s best man. He retired from a long pastorate in Kentucky but still keeps busy. His blog will be up this afternoon.
Roy Martin lived down the hall from me in seminary until he moved in with George and Wayne. We lost touch but with the magic of Facebook discovered each other–and Roy’s wife–two or three years ago. Roy retired from years of ministry but keeps busy by going back to school, picking up degrees and learning things he shares. His blog will be up December 16.
I cannot tell you the joy I feel that these two ministers and dear friends agreed to write a blog for Advent.
