“TWO NEW AUDIO SONGS ADDED!”
I go to fellowship meetings to see who I can see.
I ask about attendance; did they have more than me?
With a little politics, firm handshakes and greetings,
I can book engagements for future preaching meetings.
I enjoy the fried chicken, and pie they call key lime.
I endure the preaching also for a good outline.
I visit the book tables searching for some new themes.
I check through the t-shirts and the jars of jellybeans.
Afterwards we gather, in groups of approving peers.
We huddle a little closer, having itching ears.
What is the latest scandal on someone we can scorn?
Is it about Paul Chappel, Dr. Ruckman, or Rick Warren?
I hear they are so desperate; they’ve censored old Ken Blue.
And if you don’t walk the line, next it may be you.
I no longer steal outlines; I’ve learned to use my own,
But I miss “important news” about what’s going on.
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.
