This is a sermon I preached last Sunday after the passing of one of our leaders, Johnnie Lott. Johnnie was a great husband, father, brother, and for 32 years he served as an elder in the church where I preach in Childress. His children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are a testament to the God-fearing, loving and faithful father and husband he was. He and his wife June have created a legacy that will long outlive their years here on earth. From the time he and his family moved to Childress, he selflessly served this congregation. Even at 77, Johnnie was still teaching Bible classes, helping with the prison work, and taking care of the accounting, budget and finances at church. As a community business man, Johnnie lived what he believed inside and outside the church building.
