Happy Birthday Uncle Eric!
Eric Liddell would have been 105 today. I was reminded by one of his students: Dr. Jim Hudson Taylor, III, great-grandson of Hudson Taylor, who spearheaded missions in China in the late 1800's. Dr. Taylor saw the play last night for the second time. He brought his wife, Leone, and their grandson. I introduced him to the audience after the show as Jim Hudson Taylor, V, but that's this young man's cousin. This great-great-great grandson of Hudson Taylor is Devin Taylor Alsin. He attends University of Washington in Seattle (the only place I ever came in last in a race: steeplechase against some big schools). Devin is here to study finances for a semester. I was quite honored to hear how much he enjoyed the play. I told the audience that he may not have the name, but I'm sure he carries the mantle to accomplish great things for the Lord.
