Saint Barnabas Icon 202

George Hoffman Hiking Socks

Saint Barnabas IconHousehold body mentors operate when our resources in Christ become another person's resources. This is very important for clergy with household leaders and also for leaders with other members of the household. We all have mentors in our lives whether we realize it or not. Barnabas was one of the mentors to Paul. Paul was one of the mentors to Timothy and so on.✞

Modern Day Encouragement

Shining a Light on the StairsAs a child in the early Fifties, I remember two spinsters, Miss Church and Miss Butt, collecting insurance money every week from my parents. As mentors, they gently encouraged me, my brother and sister into a schoolhouse Sunday school and planted the seeds of my later commitment to Christ and ministry in the church. Another of my mentors as a teenager was George Hoffman. George was a scout leader and prompted me to take part in church and scout activities, though my family was barely able to afford it. On one occasion, George even gave me a pair of hiking socks because he cared. Hiking socks still remind me of this gentle and great man of God whose earthly life ended so tragically for his wife and family in a car accident. I personally look forward to meeting George again in Glory.✞
