For You May Never Know
Today we remember the telephone call, the tears on familiar faces, the trembling frames of sorrow, and yet, as he promised, we made it. On March 21, 1991, the Honorable Bishop Dr. W. McCollough went home to be with the Lord. As we remember all of his great works, we are not bereaved. On the contrary, we are comforted to know that after all that he has done, much of his work is still revealing itself in us, our children, and perhaps until time's end the seeds of salvation he planted shall continue to grow and bring forth fruit.
The moments of silence, prayers, and thanks on his behalf each day are just a hint of the celebration we shall have in the memory of Daddy McCollough during the Memorial Weekend celebration, May 25th â€“May 27th in the city of Washington DC under the direction and leadership of our present leader, the Honorable Bishop C. M. Bailey.
Truly we may never know all that Daddy McCollough has done. Nevertheless, many of us can say, "I know what Daddy McCollough has done for me." Holding to the foundational tenets of assurance and the hope of eternal life we take solace in a few of his parting words, "In That Great Getting Up Morning, Fare Ye Well, Fare Ye Well."
