Home, of Spring, Texas, was born in Centreville and is the son of the late Hil- lery and Hilma Home. He is married to Susan Home and together they have 4 children and 2 grandchil- dren.. Home graduated from Bay High School in Panama City, Florida, in 1967 and excelled in basketball and baseball. He set numerous records in basketball, lead- ing Bay High in scoring both his junior and senior years, averaging 16 and 20 points, respectively. He was named Most Valuable Play- er in basketball his senior year. Home received an As- sociate of Arts degree from Southwest Missis- sippi Community College in 1969 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Mis- sissippi State University in 1971. During his two years at Southwest, he played bas- ketball, baseball and ten- nis. His sophomore year, he led the Bears basketball team to the Junior College State Tournament by beat- ing Hinds and Co-Lin in the Regional Tournament, leading all scorers with 33 and 21 points, respectively. .~Horne earned the Most Valuable Player Award in basketball, averaging over 20 points per game, and was selected to the 1968- A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor of Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "Not that I have al- ready attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me." Philip- pians 3:12 (NKJV) The Apostle Paul; prob- ably the greatest writer, certainly the most prolific in the New Testament, who has seen, done, and perhaps more than any other person, inspired and equipped others to see and do great things, acknowl- edges his accomplishments but determines not to boast and certainly not to rest on his past. He realizes that there is no place for pride in our past works except to spur us on to great- er works through Jesus Christ. Paul's life al~r Da- mascus was one of intense devotion, determined seek- ing to "know Him and the power of His resurrection." (3:10) To those among us today who do not like "in- tentional" when applied to service and worship of the Lord, I say that Paul would find no common ground with such a prideful at- titude. It is pride of course that causes some to rest on what has been done, neglecting to continue to press in and press on as the great apostle says (see also Matthew 7:7). There is much Kingdom work to be done, it can not be done looking out the rearview mirror at what once was, and neither can it be ac- complished by relying on yesterday's bread for our strength. When the Isra- elites tried to preserve to- day's manna for tomorrow "it bred worms and stank" (Exodus 16:20); so it is with our past experiences with God when we cease to move forward and rely on what has happened in the past. Those experiences of yesterday (regardless of how great they might have been) become stumbling blocks in our relationship with a Holy God Who is building a kingdom for the present and future, not liv- ing in the past. At Mississippi State University, Horne played shortstop on the base- ball team, winning two Southeastern Conference Championships (1970-71), beating Tennessee in 1970 and Vanderbilt in 1971. In 1971, MSU won the NCAA District 3 Championship, beating Georgia Tech in the finals and advanced to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska, becom- ing the first baseball team in MSU's history to par- ticipate in this prestigious tournament. Home officiated high school basketball for 13 years in Mississippi and Texas. He stays active play- ing tennis and golf. He has been a landman in the oil and gas industry for the past 34 years and is currently employed by GeoSouthern Energy Corporation in The Woodlands, Texas. He is a member of Trinity Luther- an Church in Klein, Texas, and in past years was very active at Cypress Creek Christian Church, serving as a Stephen Minister, Lay Chaplain and Elder Board Chair.
