Heartfelt Salvation, including Henry Clay Morrison, now on line to read and share.

Heartfelt Salvation, The True Salvation, is a fresh and candid look at scripture and testimonies that teach the truth about what Salvation really is. Heartfelt Salvation reminds us of the heavenly promises, assurances and joys from the Spirit of God, clearly shed upon those that belong to Him. This book also takes a hard, and critical look at the practices and deceptions that have longed plagued Christian Churches, that sadly, we believe have led many a trusting soul to eternal doom. Rev. Henry Clay Morrison is prominently featured in the book, with much credence given to his conversion, and testimony, which bears witness to all scriptural truth. Heartfelt Salvation rallies other Christians and true believing Churches to stand up and be heard against the false practices and deceptive teachings, so prominent in the world today.
A proof copy is now on line, and can be accessed at heartfeltsalvation.wordpress.com

Though your sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow

The recent snow and cold remind us of how far we are away from the spring and summer pleasures of the Morrison Park grounds. We are looking forward to the days of activities here and once again seeing all the beautiful flowers. But the snow has its beauty too. It also reminds us of God's promise through his Son, "though your sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow."

The Loss of A True Angel of Morrison Park, Mr. Carl Jackson

                                                     
     A true Angel of Morrison Park has died in Louisville Kentucky. Mr. Jackson has been the greatest sponsor and contributor of the restoration effort at the Morrison Park Holiness Camp Meeting in Glasgow Kentucky. Carl was a nephew of Reverend J. L. Piercy, one of the earliest evangelist and supporters of the Morrison Park Camp Meeting. Piercy went around the world in 1909 with his dearest friend Reverend Henry Clay Morrison, the park's founder.
     Mr. Jackson loved Morrison Park, and was so very excited about the restoration which began in December 2010. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson have been Angels to us beyond words and description. Carl. and his son, Steven, (who has also been a great supporter of the park), visited the park last summer, the day before the dedication of the Kentucky Historical Marker which honored the Park and Reverend Morrison. It was such a pleasure to get to meet Mr. Jackson, and to know that he was pleased with all the work and restoration that had thus far been done.
    The Barren County community, the Park Board of Directors and all the many people who have helped and been involved with the restoration of Morrison Park owes much thanks and appreciation to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Jackson. We could not have even begun to have accomplished all the things that have been done, without their wonderful generosity. We extend to all the Jackson family our deepest condolences, our prayers, and our many thanks for all Mr.Jackson has meant to us. We are very saddened, and feel such a tremendous loss.

                                 
    Carl Kenneth Jackson 87 of Louisville, KY died peacefully with family and friends by his side Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at the Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital in Louisville.  Born in Barren Co. he was the son of the late Ernest Harlow Jackson and Nancy “Nannie” Piercy Jackson.
Mr. Jackson was a member of the Bethel United Methodist Church, Allen Masonic Lodge #24 where he served as past Master and secretary, D.A.V. Chapter #20, American Legion and the V.F.W Post 5906.  He was previously employed in Glasgow at Haynes Furniture, Hall Studebaker Dealer, Ford Furniture, Shirley Furniture and was co-owner of J & F Furniture.  He was manager of the Uptowner Motel in Glasgow and the Holiday Inn in Elizabethtown, KY before later retiring from Lowes Company.  Mr. Jackson also served two terms on the Glasgow City Council.
Survivors include his wife Mary Lou Harris Jackson of Louisville; a son Steve Jackson (Katie) of Nashville; three daughters Ann Attal of Austin, TX, Debbie Payton (Wayne) of Louisville, KY and Kathy Hassee (Tom) of Norwalk, OH; grandchildren Corey Jackson, Matthew Jackson, Aaron Sutherland (Kristy), Marla Kicklighter (Aaron), Scott Hassee (Rebecca), Marissa Walter (Tyler), Travis Payton, Angela Attal, Michael Attal and Malia Attal; great grandchildren Alaysia Jackson and Summer Attal Shields.  In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his first wife Roberta Moran Jackson, a sister Margaret Franklin, three brothers Joe Lee, Thomas and Paul Garnett Jackson, a grandson Mitchell Attal and a son-in-law George Attal.
Funeral services will be 2:00pm CST Sunday, January 18, 2015 at the A. F. Crow & Son Funeral Home with burial in the Glasgow Municipal Cemetery.  Visitation will be on Saturday from 1:00pm until 5:00pm CST at the Arch L. Heady-Hardy Funeral Home 7710 Dixie Hwy.

Special Visitors To Morrison Park, Tommy and Bobby Morrison

Some of the H.C.Morrison relatives who recently visited Morrison Park included famed race car driver Tommy Morrison, (center), along with his son Bobby.
    Over the years, many names and faces have made history in endurance racing. The name Tommy Morrison is one of the most recognizable. His career includes Corvette racing experience in the SCCA Showroom Stock series, IMSA GTO events, Escort Endurance Series and the Corvette Challenge Series.
Morrison began racing Corvettes on his own, with little or no sponsorship. But Morrison’s day in the sun would come, as would the opportunity of a lifetime. Morrison made history when he and a team of hand-picked endurance drivers set three world records in March 1990 using a Morrison Motorsports ZR-1 with a stock LT5 engine. The Morrison team — which also included Chevrolet's John Heinricy, Jim Minneker and Scott Allman, and drivers Kim Baker, Don Knowles, and Scott Lagasse — set new land-speed and endurance records at time trials at Fort Stockton, Texas . . . some of which had stood for half a century.
Morrison’s 24 hours averaging more than 175 miles per hour bested the previous record, set in 1940, by nearly 15 mph. The ZR-1 set a new world record for both 5,000 miles and 5,000 km. It was a proud moment for Chevrolet and for Morrison. An ad run soon after the event proclaimed “In 24 hours, we did what nobody could do for 50 years.”
Morrison has been one of Corvette’s top promoters for more than three decades, and Morrison Engineering still races Corvettes in endurance races across the country.
Bobby Morrison is a musician /singer with the ministry "Unbroken", who performs in revivals and crusades all over the country. Bobby performed several songs for us at the Morrison Library and is a most talented young man. Morrison hopes to return to the park at some later date, and hopefully someday perform for the public here.

   We have had a very productive year and have accomplished much. A lot more of the park has been cleared, with many improvements to the grounds. The restroom building is very near completion. 
   The plans for 2015, includes the expanding of electricity to the buildings on the park, and making decisions regarding a design for the reconstruction of a new tabernacle. We will continue to clean and restore the grounds, and we plan to have several worship services this year with guest ministers as the Lord will allow. God bless you all and please continue to pray for our efforts in restoring our dear old Morrison Park Camp-Meeting.    Gary Bewley
