Back in my comedy days I met an interesting and humble man named Charles Kelley while on tour. I don’t remember what town I was in, but I’m sure it was somewhere in Texas. I remembered that he had been a mortician and he had some children who were in "ministry". I think that is a mild way of putting it. His children have helped to shape the Southern Baptist Convention, as well as Mr. Kelly himself.
Charles Kelley recently went home to be with the Lord. In our brief conversation I was touched by his humility, passion for ministry and love for God. As a layman, he quietly made a difference in this world. We could use more folks like him!
