We even went to church camps. I believe Mom was a devout Christian. She and I went every Monday night to Bible study with a converted Jew who had gone blind studying the Bible. His own family had his funeral when he converted. His name was Brother Joseph, and his Bible study was so in-depth I was mesmerized. This man loved the Lord! His love was so beautiful, and his spiritual knowledge was so awesome. I saved my money one summer and bought him the New Testament on records. I was given a great understanding for someone so young.

They didn’t take into consideration that he was also short — less than six feet tall. Someone six foot three, like me, with a much bigger bone structure and frame, shouldn’t be starved down to that size and still be expected to perform at full strength, but that was ou’s philosophical mind-set then. This is the same system that had produced Jim Weatherall, an All-American tackle and pro football defensive tackle who weighed over 270, yet somehow, with the influence of people like Roberts, they had bought into a “small and quick” concept and tried making all of us fit their concept instead of taking full advantage of our individual skills, including strength and size.

If I came back still in a bad mood, I had to run it again. Some days Mom would take me to school on her way to work, but mostly I walked or rode my bicycle through my grade school and even junior high days. In high school, riding a bicycle to school wasn’t cool, so I walked. This was another example of the insecurity that exists when we gain our self-esteem from our peers instead of from our Lord. Sometimes my mother took me to school when I was in high school. We would pull up to the front entrance, where all “the boys” — the top athletes and school leaders — would congregate.
