30 years ago today

Remember what you were doing July 27, 1984?
It was the day before the Summer Olympics began in Los Angeles, so you might have watched the preview show.
That night, I attended a meeting that led to Grace Community Church.
But I didn't make it to the first service a few weeks later in September.
Because the attendees included a younger brother of the editor of the Georgetown Times in South Carolina. When the first service took place, I was already a professional sportswriter 500 miles from my home.
The church grew and multiplied over the years without me. But I got to see the beginning.
