I had the privilege of a great friendship with Dr. Parker in the last ripe years of his life & I was in his vestry one day when a man came in.
Dr. Parker had preached that morning a great sermon & this man said, “I want to thank you for that sermon. It did me good.”
Dr. Parker looked at him & said: “Sir, I preached it because it had done me good.”
He had given a message that had come out of his own life, something that had gripped him.
