Associate National Director

Stars and StripesSpeaking for Jesus as a Christian evangelist was a major task many years later when Church Army appointed me Associate National Director in our New York Headquarters. A young man there kept on pestering me to take him out on open air campaigning. I was unsure of myself and uncertain whether this was the right thing to do! I didn't want to discourage him, but I was afraid of what might happen. He just kept on needling and needling. Deep down I knew that one day I would have to give in! One day, my secretary in Headquarters became curious as to what I was going to do next.

Open Air Meeting

One day, seeing me folding a large American flag, she hesitantly asked, "Ray, what in the world are you doing now?" "Ed and I are going to hold an open air meeting on Broadway tonight," I told her. "We need the large American flag to satisfy city regulations." Scratching her head, she replied disbelieving, "But WE DON'T DO that sort of thing in the Episcopal Church!" As I hurried downstairs with the large American flag and out unto the busy street I called back, "I'll see you tomorrow!"
