I had been at Bible college just a few hours when I was summoned to the office. I thought I’d buried all my teenage sins deep enough, but, as I walked across the green lawn to the administration building, I wondered if my college career would end before it started.
Turns out, they didn’t want me getting too comfortable in that nice dorm room thinking I had it all to myself. I would have a roommate. Barry Hardwick was on his way from Tennessee and that other bed in my room was his. I thought they gave me that nice big room because they recognized all the qualities of greatness I possessed and wanted to treat me with the deference I deserved. Instead, I was just a human RESERVED sign that held that quality space until Barry was ready to move in.
