I witnessed to Bill Murray!!!

Remember the movie Caddyshack? Bill Murray played the part of Carl Spackler. He was the greens-keeper at the golf course the movie was based on. Today I was @ Starbucks on 7th Ave in "Uptown" Charlotte. I love "UPTOWN" Charlotte because there are so many eclectic people! I was in-between hospital visits so I went to study for my message on Sunday. I was journaling my prayer for the morning as I do everyday when a man named Thad asked if he could sit in the comfy chair next to me. I said yes and continued praying. I asked God to send me another "Person of Peace" (read A Passionate Life) my way today. God did! Thad started talking to me. Thad looks like, sounds like and acts like "Carl Spackler" (Bill Murray). I had to keep from laughing everytime he talked. I kept thinking "The Cinderella story here at Augusta about to become the Master's Champion." He was your typical "post-modern" person. He talked about Scientology, Creationism, Catholisim, etc.... I realized this was my "Person of Peace." I talked with him for over an hour about every religion in the world. Finally he realized he needed Jesus. He is in real estate/construction/fixer ups. So, the best analogy I could come up with for him to accept Christ was to make Jesus the "Head Foreman" of his life. He sat there in Starbucks and asked Jesus to become his "Head Foreman!" Praise God. He was headed back to Hilton Head today, but is moving to Uptown in a few weeks. He is going to call me when he gets back. What an awesome day! I wanted to shout: "It's in the hole!" Update: I forgot to mention that I used the Starbucks Card that Dorcas Hawker sent me a few weeks ago! Thanks Dorcas!

Kevin,

You are my new hero. I have so much to learn from you about getting people to talk in public settings. I never get past "you mind if I sit here?"

By the way -- thanks for the mention of me, but you put my name in t-sip orange! I am a bleeding-maroon Aggie ...

I guess since God is using you for the good of the Kingdom, I'll forgive you ... this time. :)

Brother Kevin B,

You are my kind of preacher. Maybe we can hit the streets in Greensboro together and fish for a few men during the BIG MEETIN break times.

Really great story.

I need you and 'Bill' standing beside me at Greensboro so the lightening rod on top of my head will be rendered impotent by the golf club you guys hold above me :)

Dorcas! You're an Aggie too?

I was headed there before God called me to the ministry and changed my plans.

I got a new A&M sweatshirt when I was home for Christmas, but folkd here in KY just stare. I've had a few ask, "Whats an Aggie?"

Gig 'em!

Pastor Kevin B,

Amen!!! Another great example of ministering outside the walls. May God continue to bless you for your willingness to be used.

Kevin,

That's awesome!


Art,

Forget, "What's an Aggie?" Most people here in KY have to ask, "What's a football?" At least you and Dorcas aren't fans of that fake UT with the fake orange in Austin.

Wow Kevin, it blows me away how you can do that. I mean, I can picture it, can hear you talking, can feel the excitement that you have when you're talking 'bout Jesus. And I love to hear the stories of your encounters. By the way, do you ever sleep?

Jana,

NO! I don't sleep :) That's why I need Starbucks!
