the rest of the story

In an effort to optimize the time available to our teacher, Dr. Biggs, I simply said “we’ve still got him!” to introduce him this morning. Here is the rest of the story that I would have shared given time…..

In 1980, Carl Leonard was the chairman of our administrative board. When Dr. John Russell was named a bishop as expected in early August, Carl and Armon Bost had this young vibrant preacher from Beaumont Texas squarely in their sites.

At either the August or September administrative board meeting (I don’t recall which), Carl came to the meeting and in his plain-spoken way announced they had succeeded in recruiting Dr. M. Mouzon Biggs with the simple statement “We got him!”

It was that memory that caused my introduction of this great teacher this morning.
