From the Prairie Schooner in Texas to a City Flat in New York


Friday night I'll portray CB Jernigan for the District Assembly of the Metro New York Church of the Nazarene. We're celebrating our centenial, and Jernigan was the District's superintendant in the 1920s. He, like I, moved from the country to the biggest city in the US. Most of the words of Jernigan's speech on Friday is taken directly from his book From the Prairie Schooner in Texas to a City Flat in New York. I stumbled upon the text of the book online.

Rich,
I felt like I was sitting in that first assembly hearing the report for the very first time.
It was amazing and it brought history to life. We have a rich heritage. Thank you for helping us to appreciate it.
In Christ,
Karen Guevara
