Tony Campolo on Good Friday

Tags: , ,

Posted : April 6th, 2012 by

Every Good Friday, I think of an old story my dad told me about. I remember as a little kid listening to the stereo with the voice of who I now realize was Tony Campolo as he ranted on about a preach-off. It was a preaching “competition” with the head pastor at a black church in Philadelphia & he gives a nice little lesson on some of the differences between white and black churches. It’s all true.

The whole story can be downloaded here but in this short little Youtube clip, Campolo gives a little sample of how he preached this perfect sermon and then challenged the next preacher to get up, Dr. Tony, with a little knee pat saying, “Top that”.

What Dr. Tony preached for the next 30 minutes was basically one phrase that I’ll never forget: “It’s Friday, but Sunday’s coming”.
