Tribute: Gerald P. Taylor (2)

A Life of Consistency

In 1948, Mr. Taylor invited me to join him in gospel work in eastern Ontario. In the years following we labored together holding meetings in homes, schools, tents, halls, and in assemblies. He loved the gospel and could preach it well, being concise and to the point.

He was a man of integrity and could be depended upon. He loved the assembly and its Scriptural principles. He enjoyed conferences very much and thought that, if possible, a preacher should be there from the commencement to the finish.

I remember that he said, “Time spent over your Bible is not wasted time.” He also was very definite that gifts received should be acknowledged promptly.

In visiting him in declining years I appreciated his continued, happy spirit; even in his last illness he was cheerful and happy.
