Congratulations, Rev. Dr. James A. Brooks on 104 years of splendid life! Pastor, teacher, friend, father, grandfather, great-father, uncle and shepherd to us all! You are the keeper of the compass.

TRIBUTE POEM

As we see you standing there behind the pulpit reading from God’s word

We think back to all those beautiful and blessed sermons that we heard

Your devotion, spirit, wisdom and your love are precious gifts bestowed upon us from above

You see, Pastor Brooks there was a reason God saved your soul

He knew serving Him with all your heart would be your life’s goal

For in your footsteps we so gratefully trod, because we know in following you we are always following God.

From Your Church Family,

St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church
