I found this message after learning about your homeless assignment from the Lord through a major media outlet. Wow – the body of Christ needs this teaching and leadership. God bless Pastor Willie, his family and Sango United Methodist Church. This message was the answer to a prayer about understanding homelessness. Thank you for your candid and detailed explanation of what The Lord showed you.
Wow! I can’t believe that there is only one comment!
Great sermon – great lesson!
What an amazing way to start your time as a new pastor! Way to take the focus off of the “new” pastor!!!
I found out about Pastor Lyle’s experience after researching a Facebook post that turned out to be false. Thank you for being obedient to God’s will and sharing the experience. Awesome sermon!!!
wow. speechless. excellent word in season. just what i needed. inspired. thank you.
Thank you for posting this sermon. I enjoyed listening to it. There was a copycat post on Facebook about a Pastor Steepek who supposedly did the exact same thing and it posted a picture of an actual homeless person saying it was this pastor. I’m happy to know that the story was true even though their version was made up.
Thank you brother Willie…your message and Gods message is affecting lives elsewhere ….just wanted yo say thank you for the motivation
Like Stephanie (comments above), I too found this message after researching another story on the internet about a supposed pastor Steepek…who apparently does not exist. Instead, I found this sermon by Pastor Willie.
To the men and women of Sango UMC, you are truly blessed! Our churches today need this type of a pastor and this type of Christian leadership. On several occasions while listening the this sermon, I found strange wet things rolling down my cheeks. I may not live in Clarksville, but I was deeply convicted as I listened to this message! I could have easily been sitting in that congregation, guilty of being on “Cruise Control!” I could have been the one who walked by that homeless man and glanced in the other direction. I could have been the person who did not offer to help. Thank you Pastor, for showing me my shortcomings.
Church members, I hope that you still regularly pray for your Pastor. I hope that you still pray for his family and his marriage. I hope that you still pray for your church body and your community. But more than anything, I hope that you have felt and seen the change over the last year of the Holy Spirit working in you.
Blessings to you all,
Thank you Bill for sharing this with me.
Totally awesome. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this clip. After sharing a similar story on Facebook, a dear friend shared this link with me to listen. I was moved by the pastor’s experiences, his descriptions of how God blessed him with needs and led him through blind faith to complete his mission, pains and all. I walk away from this message enriched, blessed, and to be honest, also a bit entertained with the ease this gentleman conveyed his message. As a southern woman that grew up in the bible belt of the south, any church should feel honored to have this man’s leadership in God’s ministry. I know the story I shared originally was not a true story……… but somehow, this one makes up for it immensely as the message is the same. It is God’s command to help our fellow man in need through service in our churches. Thank you!
I too found this page as a result of an article in the Tennessean about your 5 days as a homeless person. Thank you for being obedient. Trying to seek God about what this means to me and what I need to be doing. Bless you.
Just now got around to seeing this. I could do more in my own church.
