Sis got a call late one Saturday night from our preacher at Fosters Chapel, Rev. Christopher Greene. He was feeling ill and asked Sis to fill in for him in the morning and deliver a short sermon. Sis agreed to help out the reverend and got to church early. She preached about the sins of tobacco and alcohol. She told the congregation that all the tobacco should be thrown into the river. She told them that all the beer and wine should be thrown into the river. Also, she told them that all the liquor should be thrown in the river. She then said, “Let us stand and sing our closing hymn, number 723, ‘Shall we gather at the river.’”
