Long before those Toronto Blue Jays days I was preaching and playing the organ on Sunday evenings at Pine Street Gospel Chapel in Norwood, Ontario. I praise God for the opportunity that was afforded me in those days. This photo was taken in October 1974.

I guess they didn't mind if long-haired, short & wide-tied, knock-kneed, bespectacled red heads looked after the service in those days. The words "geek" and "nerd" hadn't come into vogue back then but I certainly was one. Don't laugh too hard!
"I have been young and now I am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor His seed begging bread." - Psalm 37:25 (KJV)


  1. Everybody looked "geeky" back then. Wonder what the future generations will say about the present one?

  2. You know what David?
    The Gospel Halls and Gospel Chapels all look alike...They are home!!

    Actually Mrs. Mac...That Fish Boy looks like a real nurd!!
    I mean like he is a real brown noser!!
    Please dont tell David I said so though...I wouldn't want to hurt his feelings! No! Not for the world...... from anonymous

  3. Well Mr Fish...what can I say....
