Thursday, we went and saw the birthplace of Vance Havner in the Jugtown community. My husband got to talk to his grandnephew. Vance Havner was born in the room at the left window. We also drove past the First Baptist Church of Hickory, where he preached his first sermon. My husband enjoys reading his books.
Here are some of his quotes.
Vance Havner Quotes
“If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.”
“Too many church services start at eleven sharp and end at twelve dull.”
“I'm tired of hearing sin called sickness and alcoholism a disease.
It is the only disease I know of that we're spending hundreds of millions of dollars a year to spread
You haven't lost anything when you know were it is.
Death can hide but not divide.”
“Sometimes your medicine bottle has on it, ''Shake well before using.'' That is what God has to do with some of His people. He has to shake them well before they are ever usable.”
