Re: Carroll McGruder near death

I don't know the man but sure hate to hear this. Didn't he recently get married? I didn't realize he was ill but I might have seen it and forgotten. I only saw him and his wife sing once and that was at Becton's church dedication in Nashville about a decade ago.

"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."

Yes, cancer. A friend who just visited tells that as he lays dying he is ministering to those who visit him....seriously ministering to others.

God's love and grace are always enough!

Re: Carroll McGruder near death

So sad. We heard the McGruders sing years ago. Wonderfully anointed people.

Makes me think of the Willoughby's in Singapore. She died first of cancer and then he died a few short years later, leaving children behind.

Will certainly be praying for him.

Re: Carroll McGruder near death

I remember them singing at landmark of 1980(Carroll/Priscilla). They sung "that sounds like home to me".....

That was very inspirational!
