I met Doug while I was pastor at Chatham Heights Baptist Church and a customer of Trull's barbershop next door. I would stop in for a hamburger and the politics of the day. We would trade good natured cryptic remarks He kept me in touch with the thinking of people who did not come to church each week. For that I was grateful. I would have liked to have him as a part of our flock because he would have challenged us all to live out our professed faith in Jesus Christ.
