An Address Delivered by Rev B W
Reed at the Twentyel ICilhth Anni
versary of Rev B P1 Marrs D
D of Beargrass Baptist Churob
I > uiviHe Ky
I can not call to memory a single
period in toy life when I received an in
vitation to an entertainment or gather
ing that I esteemad with any higher de
gree of reverence respect and regard
titan the one fxteudud to me by your
honorable committe urging upon me to
bn present upon this ooceaion A meet
lug that should mean and bespeak a
great deal to the members and friends of
the Beargrasn Baptist church and it
should be apprtiated by all tbe Baptist
ana good citizens of Louisville When I
read your welome invitation and pro
gram and saw that my name appetred
fhuieon to address yon I was very much
perplexed iu mind as to what f should
speak bout on this occasion Deuausd I
absolutely felt thatun ev nt like this di
manditd men or stronger mind and bit se
nd with a n re ready gift Thus
11 I felt my unwortbiiiyps ofbb place yon
ullowid me on sour program But while
iiitoiiitariug ou the adair and knowing
IDr I Marrs us I have and we having
been so closely related In the wqrk of
the ministry and find him always ready
and willing to give words of cheer and
good advlu to Jll young ministers and
having a faint idea what it mtm In this
day to pastor a oharch 23 years this sub
Jeut vary lordly Impressed Itself upon
my aniIr Kdifjing and Entertaining
I From this Hubjot thise division sug
gest tumselvea to my mini
I Dr Miirrn iH i Edifyiag and Knter
laming an li citizen und a inighbcr
II He in Edifying and Entertaining
ifi a pastor preuuhtr teacher and histo
rian and worker
Nov thru if we would acuipt the most
common plain and practical Idea of the
auhjoct WH would understand it to mean
development and improvement or an en
tertaining one is to to another morally
ADcia ly auk rejigfiausly i And it IB ad
sdaiH tied fact that when snub thing
uau be saidof and are true of any per
Honor persons there should be no bjuTsT
tiuu in the as to their bring of advantage
to the world as a citizen and neighbor
HiiQ I most luvaribly believe and feel
that 1 voice uhf sentiment of all the hon
est uprij bt and intwIliKent membf r of
this church anil iieighboihood when I
tell you even can be said of and in i tue
ot your praiseworthy and houornd pas
tor who has been jour leader for 23 long
and prosperous years You can at once
see that Dr Marrs ra edifying and eu >
teitainlng asa citizen find neighbor dur
ing his stay among you 1rWU wonlo
further and more accurately seebis fact
as brought out here we are only to In
vestigate hit career and work in the com
munity 23 years ago and that of the
present and draw contrast We will find
a considerable difference in affairs
If we would allow our minds to take a
rt view of the situation in
this community among you peopfe S
years ago we would uot find it ad bright
and prosperous us It is i to day Dr Marru
bad just begun > creating and molding
sentiment in the hearts and tuluds of tbe
young people for their future usefulness
and development
It can be said of Dr Jam what cannot
be said df but few Baptist ministers and
that he is a historian And for us to fully
know this fact we are only to read the two
books and the tracts he has written anoth
er book and for us to know him Mil teach
er we are only to search the records and we
find him spending 24 years in the school
room and certainly it would take a consid
erable volume to give the experience one
would gain as teacher in such a long time
If we want a clearer and more definite
proof TIS to the honor a man like Dr Marrs
is to you and the racewe only ask you to
investigate tills brief sketch the history of
of his career When the great cry went
through this country in the sixtys for men
to go to battle I see Dr Marrs shouldering
his uapsack and gun and marching to the
front like a man in the defense of his coun
try In this war he was honored because he
he1da po ition as QuarerMasterSergeant
He served out his Pmt received an honora
ble discharge and is now dossed among the
leaders of the Q A Rs which to Diy mind
is one o the most honi rabje organizations 1
now in existence
And after coming out of this cruel war of
the sixties we find him for twentyfour
long years at war in the school battling
against Ignorance and superstition tthe
following places Simpsonville Ja Gran ge
N Castle Shelbyville and for six years
at this place
And if we would point to any matt with
pride and honor as being the first Manager
of State University H would be Dr Marrs I 1
pastor of Beargrass Baptist church But >

due and I think itis due him and let us
give it to him while he lives
Let us look further for the worth and
value of such a man He has written two
books The Biographical sketch of his own
Lifeand Back to my old home wbere 1 was
converted fifty years ago aed now writing
a history ofjthe Central District Assdciation
And for seventeen years when the Gener
al Association wants some one to hold its
moneythe mice of the Baptists Dr Mans I
pastor ofe Beargrass Baptist church 1
which posi on he now holds
He is tre surer of the Ministers and Dea
cons Confc enci treasurer of the Republi
can League of Kentucky treasurer of the
AfroAmei can League of this city trustee
of State U iyersity and a loud agent for a I
millionai of NYand holds a prominent
position ir i the GA R Last but not t
he has bee i pastor of the Beargrass Baptist
church for wentythree years
Dear me tubers and friends I conclude by
saying th we are not only to think of Dr
Marrs as anding right in front of our de
nomination for about half a century fight
the good fight of faith and then think of
the great work God has Wrought through
him in this long time for the Masters cause
we must conclude that God could not have
used him had he not of been a man that
could both edify and entertain Hence
double honor should be thrown around
him in his declining days And as he
nears yonder world and its beautiful sun
bright clime he should be made to Jook
back over a well spent life and feel that
somebody has a bright appreciation of the
great work God has wrought through him
during hi stay on earth And when we
can gaze on his face and behold the wrink
les therein and take a look at his hoary j
hair which tells us that he Has stood the
frost of many winters and then behold
his stature which speaks louder than thun
der and tells us that he has stood the bur
den in the heat of the day and yet stand
ing as a stone wall in tiledefense of his
denomination and race I repeat again that I
as a servant heis worthy of double honor I
being confered upon him and I am one ofI I
those who bave met the Beargrass Baptist t 1
Church today to join with them in prayer
and true devotion to God that he might
live long and accomplish much good for
the Master and his race L forI I
