Before jumping in to the usual business, I would like to take a moment to dedicate this week’s post to Rev. Dr. Anthony Gibson, who passed from this world on Wednesday, April 17. Prior to his retirement in 2010, he was pastor of Calvary Baptist Church for 36+ years. He served the church and the community faithfully, and the impact of his work is eternal.
I think it is appropriate that the Cross and Crown appear again this week, because I’ve found another “crown” verse that would apply to Pastor Gibson:
Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award me on that day… – 2 Timothy 4:8a
In Memoriam: John Moore, 1828 – 1904; Margaret Moore, 1830 – 1900.
