Gospel legend: Wright wants back in the pulpit

He can’t eat, drink or even breathe on his own. He lost his wife and grandson and couldn’t attend the funeral. And then there’s the rehab.

For more than a month, the Wall has tracked the progress of the “Godfather of Gospel,” [and noted Wall of Famer] Rev. Timothy Wright after he was involved in a tragic car accident. And now, we get this amazing story of the human spirit from the New York Daily News:

Still, in the most dire period of his life, Wright, 61, wants nothing more than to get back in the pulpit, preaching to his loving congregation… “He was asking to put a tent on the parking lot, so he can hold his services outside here,” [Family friend, Laurie] Schneider added. “That’s all he’s praying for – to give a service.”

Dude is incapacitated but that doesn’t stop his love for God! And yet there are people warming pews every Sunday that have issues tithing?! Or serving?! Or witnessing?! And Rev. Wright wants to preach without a voice and motion without movement. Something tells me from this story, he already has!

Glory to God for his reality!

Oh, MEMO to all Gospel-lovin’ Wall watchers. You can imagine how expensive all this rehab must be for Rev. Wright. Completely unsolicited (but if you read the post that began this trilogy, you know why), here’s HOW TO HELP:

Donations made out to the Rev. Timothy Wright can be sent to: Timothy Wright Trust, 3399 Lawson Blvd. Oceanside, NY 11572. Checks for more than $500 should be made out to the Kessler Institute with “For Rev. Wright” in the memo line. They should also be mailed to the Oceanside address.
