My first two semesters at Harding University I was undecided on what my major should be. I had thought about marketing for a while for several months, but had sensed a call to ministry years. But I remember the day that I made the final leap. It was the day this video was shot.
I’ve looked for years for this video, I didn’t know the speakers name, after all he just was “some guy.” But it was in this moment sitting in the Freshman balcony at Harding Chapel that I suddenly realized the power of preaching. I went the next week and declared as a Bible major. And I didn’t know until last week, that this woman was connected to Abilene and to a family that I know and love at Highland.
It’s strange the way the world works, I highly recommend watching this video, and if you are interested you can see the interview that Mike Cope had a couple of years earlier with Vicki Dell here. One of the most powerful lines in this entire interview is where she says, “ I am so grateful that God counted me worthy to suffer for Him.”
Who says that? What an incredible person, what an incredible faith! One that is still bearing fruit decades later. So thank you Vicki and Chris for sharing your faith.
Any other Harding peeps out there remember this chapel? Did it move you as much as it did me?
