Hundreds of us kept a secret for several weeks in expectation of a special remembrance of Jackie and Mackie Chesnutt's 40 years of ministry at Southside. Dozens of you brought cards. Larry Crowell had a funny and sweet memory of this special couple.
Then Tom Williams shared some of the Chesnutt's early history at Southside, including Joy Bus memories. He sung songs, passed down an award (the dirty sock) and shared his love.
Then Terry Rush from Tulsa, Oklahoma gave us big smiles as he read what purported to be a note Jackie wanted read in his honor. We all loved the moment. Terry is not only a powerful proclaimer of the Good News but he's an outstanding stand-up comedian!
What a day! Thanks to the Chesnutt's for 40 years of friendship and service. Here's to another 40!!
