. . . Morris Venden was drafted by his son to present the weekly sermon. He was not expecting
the invitation. In his own words, he "didn't even bring a suit." So, he borrowed a jacket from
Tom Allen, a local physics teacher.
In the company of crying babies, failing batteries in the cordless microphone, and an
appreciative audience, Pastor Venden delivered what one listener (who had preached many
sermons himself) later called ". . outstanding! It may be the most enlightening sermon I've ever
heard! I've just listened to it twice and am on the third time." (This listener first encountered it
via CD.) As far as we know, the sermon remains uncopyrighted.

Many years later. . .
. . . at a large campmeeting, Don Schneider gave a presentation - coincidentally just a
few hundred yards from the location where Morris Venden's sermon (above) was delivered.
The topic: "What does God see when He looks at you?"
The encouraging answer - enabled by Jesus' sacrifice - "You Look Good to Me!"
