Letters from my dad - 1979

"Bud,

I just read your Romans 8:28-30 New Year's sermon preached here [at Lake Avenue Church] years ago. I am so blessed, I have to stop my own writing and say how I admire and love you. What clear thinking! 'He's my son!! I am so privileged. Romans 8:28 is my experience too.'

See you soon.

Dad"

Dad was an off-the-charts encourager. I did not deserve it. But he made it the emotional environment of our relationship.
