On Saturday, August 18, 2018, I had the honor of delivering the homily at a Memorial Service for Cheryl Cummins, who died in a car accident in May. Cheryl was an active member of St. Luke United Methodist Church in Cleveland, MS, where I served as pastor for four years. She taught at Delta State University and was a beloved member of the community. I am grateful that her husband, Mark, and her daughters, Hayley and Kellie, asked me to return to Cleveland and deliver this homily. In remembering Cheryl, let us give thanks for the saints among us, and the saints who have gone before us.Read More
