The Day My Father Died

This mp3 is a talk given by J. Pittman McGehee, D.D. on 9-16-90 at Christ Church Cathedral Sunday School class in Houston, Texas.

In his Father’s life time, men would seal themselves off from so much because that is what they had to do. Even now, I would guess many men can relate to this kind of quiet desperation where their inner world is kept hidden from those that mean the most to them and even from themselves as they stoically stay on the left side of their brains.
