Preaching Without Notes...

Doris Akers
♫ I Sure Do Love The Lord

♦ Deuteronomy 11: 16-21 ♦  (The Message)
16 But be vigilant, lest you be seduced away and end up 
serving and worshiping other gods
17 and God erupts in anger and shuts down Heaven so there's 
no rain and nothing grows in the fields, and in no time at 
all you're starved out - not a trace of you left on the good 
land that God is giving you.
18 Place these words on your hearts. Get them deep inside 
you. Tie them on your hands and foreheads as a reminder.
19 Teach them to your children. Talk about them wherever you 
are, sitting at home or walking in the street; talk about 
them from the time you get up in the morning until you fall 
into bed at night.
20 Inscribe them on the door-posts and gates of your cities
21 so that you'll live a long time, and your children with 
you, on the soil that God promised to give your ancestors 
for as long as there is a sky over the Earth.

♫ Trouble In The Amen Corner

Trouble in the Amen Corner
by Archie Campbell
It was a stylish congregation: you could see they’d been around,
And they had the biggest pipe organ of any church in town.
But over in the amen-corner of that church sat Brother Eyer,
and he insisted every Sunday on singing in the choir.
His voice was cracked and broken; age had touched his vocal chords,
And nearly every Sunday he’d get behind and miss the words.
Well, the choir got so flustered the church was told in fine
that Brother Eyer must stop his singing or the choir was gonna resign.
So the pastor appointed a committee, I think it was three or four,
and they got in their big fine car and drove up to Eyer’s door.
They found the choir’s great trouble sitting there in an old arm-chair,
And the summer’s golden sunbeams lay upon his snow-white hair.
Said York, “Ah, we’re here dear Brother, with the vestry’s approbation
to discuss a little matter that affects the congregation.
Now, it seems that your voice is interfered with the choir,
So, if you’ll just lay out, or... Are you listening, Brother Eyer..?”
The old man raised his head, a sign that he did hear;
and on his cheek the 3 men caught the glitter of a tear.
His feeble hands pushed back the locks as white as silky snow,
and he answered the committee in a voice both soft and low:
“I wonder if beyond the tide that’s breaking at my feet,
in that far-off heavenly temple where my Master and I shall meet:
Yes, I wonder if, when I try to sing the songs of God up higher
I wonder if they’ll kick me out up there for singin' in Heaven’s choir?”
A silence filled the little room, the old man bowed his head;
The committee went on back to town, but Brother Eyer was dead.
The choir missed him for a while, but he was soon forgot.
A few church-goers watched the door, but the old man entered not.
Far away his voice is sweet, and he sings his heart’s desires
Where there are no church committees and no fashionable choirs.

Joshua 1: 8 ♦ (The Message)
And don't for a minute let this Book 
of The Revelation be out of mind.
Ponder and meditate on it day and night, 
making sure you practice everything 
written in it. Then you'll get where 
you're going; then you'll succeed.

Doris Akers
♫ Lord Don't Move The Mountain

She learned to play the piano by ear at age six and by age ten had composed her first song. By the time she was twelve, she had organized a five-piece band that played music of the 1930s. When she was only 22 years of age, she moved to Los Angeles, where she encountered a thriving gospel music community. She met several outstanding musicians, such as Eugene Douglas Smallwood, who greatly influenced the gospel music career of this young African-American lady. A year later, Doris joined the Sallie Martin Singers as pianist and singer. Two years later, with Dorothy Vemell Simmons, she formed the Simmons–Akers Singers and also launched a publishing firm called Akers Music House.In 1958, in a Los Angeles church, she started a racially mixed gospel group, the Sky Pilot Choir, which featured African-American gospel music. People would drive for miles just to hear their song arrangements. Many artists, including the Stamps–Baxter Quartet, Bill Gaither, George Beverly Shea, and Mahalia Jackson, have recorded Akers' songs. Countless other Southern Gospel Music groups still record and sing her music. Millions of church members have sung her songs, which have long been published in many hymnals. She was a recording artist, music arranger, choir director, and songwriter and was awarded Gospel Music Composer of the Year for both 1960 and 1961.In 1958, she and Mahalia Jackson co-wrote "Lord, Don't Move the Mountain," which won a Manna Music Gold West Plaque in recognition of one million records sold. She was honored by the Smithsonian Institution, which labeled her songs and records "National Treasures." She was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2001, along with such notables as the Rambos and Kurt Kaiser. She wrote the famous "Sweet Sweet Spirit" in 1962To the end of her earthly life, Doris Akers believed that God wants His children to pray. Her songs have circled the globe, aiding Christians of all nationalities in their worship of the heavenly Father. She passed away on July 26, 1995, in Minneapolis
