Bishop John Kershaw

Not sure how many knew that Bishop Kershaw passed recently, and the service is this weekend.

Re: Bishop John Kershaw

Barb, I just saw that on FB this morning. Sad to hear this. In my youth he was one of the biggest names in UPC ministry. So many of the leaders of the time of my youth have gone on to their reward now. Which of course means I am getting old as well.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

I feel your pain. Seeing their grandchildren getting into the ministry adds to this.

Re: Bishop John Kershaw

I heard only one sermon of his back in the late 70's about the 14-year tribulation he believed in. Was that the same man? Didn't want to confuse him with someone else.

Re: Bishop John Kershaw

He was the preacher the night I received the Holy Ghost.
My family had known him for many years before that.
