Another Verse . . .

An Epitaph – from Christian Anecdotes

“To the memory of Andrew Brian who pastored slaves in Savannah. Having been whipped for doing so, he replied he was willing to suffer death for his Lord.  His memory is still precious in the hearts of the living:

‘Afflicted long he bore the rod
With calm submission to his maker, God.
His mind was tranquil and serene
No terrors in his looks were seen
A Saviours smile dispelled the gloom,
And smoothed the passage to the tomb.’”

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
