My Sunday School Teacher when I was 13

A Thought from Scott Turansky...

Several people have influenced my life over the years. My parents, of course, are high on the list as they helped me to value God's Word and to cherish my relationship with the Lord. But they were wise in connecting me with other leaders and authorities in my life. Some of those were their friends and others were youth leaders and Sunday School teachers. 


I got a note from Elliott while I was in Southern California this week. He was looking for me through my son Josh. He lives just seven miles from the hotel I'm staying in. I immediately called him up and asked him if I could take him out to dinner. We talked for over three hours about what the Lord has done in our lives over the years. 

You see, Elliott was my Sunday School teacher when I was 13 years old. He took a special interest in me and taught me how to speak publicly back then. I'm grateful for people like Elliott who take an interest in the next generation. In fact, Elliott has now offered to teach my son Josh some things about public speaking and he's even willing to work with my grandson, Hudson to teach him some things too. 

Isn't that what it's all about. We all are looking for ways to build into the next generation. I'm grateful for people like Elliott who took a personal interest in my spiritual growth. Thank you Elliott for your gift of time and for contributing to my life.

Here's a short video interview I did with Elliott last night. I thought you might find it inspiring for your own spiritual growth and development.

  1. Lyle Dorsett was a significant figure in my spiritual formation - and that of many, many other young men. He invested weekly in authentic relationships, and invited college students into their home and life (thanks to Mary's hospitality and "cookie pushes". The folks who were mentored by him are literally scattered all over the globe.
