My family and I went to a fast-food restaurant for a quick bite, placed our order and put the car in drive as I said, “Thank you.” The answer came back, “My pleasure.”

Kyle Lake: A tribute

By Jinny Henson

I met Kyle Lake twenty years ago while on a church youth choir tour. His hometown of Tyler, Texas was the second stop for us. The Lakes with their 3 boys and one girl had offered to be a host family and my best friend, Colleen and I were thrilled at our good fortune of winding up in a house with three good looking boys. That was the epic stuff that teenage girls dreams are made of.

I met my husband, John, through them. They were all hunting buddies and attended church every time the doors were even slightly open.

The last time John and I saw Kyle was a Christmas Eve service a few years ago in Tyler. He told us all about his church in Waco with a thrilled look in his eye, unusual for a pastor in the throes of Christmastime. His church was for people who didn’t fit in at other churches, he explained.

COMMENTARY: A lesson from Leroy

By David Harp

The last spoon of cornbread dressing and giblet gravy sat on my plate, and I realized Thanksgiving was almost gone. So soon, the sights, sounds and smells of another beautiful Christmas season will be upon us. Before we move on to candy canes and cinnamon pinecones and honey-glazed spiraled hams, I still want to cherish my Thanksgiving. I want to live that attitude of gratitude for God’s many blessings of life.

Recently, my wife, Andrea, and I traveled to Austin for the Baptist General Convention of Texas annual meeting. This was going to be an unusually hectic year for us, with added meetings both before and after the convention. So, with the help of Internet specials, we decided to fly to Austin.

When we arrived, we hailed a taxi to get to our hotel, and that’s when we met Leroy.
