Dr. Scott was a man of slight stature, lyrical eloquence, profound towering intellect and godly wisdom. His were two of the first books I purchased as a young freshman preacher at Bishop College. He was designated by Ebony Magazine as one of the 15 Greatest Preachers in Black America. I, along with professors, classmates and other preachers and pastors from across the nation, thrilled to his exposition of the scriptures, whether during our Religious Emphasis Week, or the L.K. Williams Ministers' Institute, or even during Friday chapel services when we had the special treat of his being in town.
I had the great privilege of getting to know him and spend time with him when he started pastoring in Dallas at the St. John Baptist Church, after 35 years at Calvary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California.
He was a kind and gentle man. He had a kind and gentle spirit. He was patient with young preachers and he loved his parishioners and was devoted to their spiritual well being and nourishment.
This clip barely does justice to his tremendous talent. It's merely a very brief sample of what those of us who loved him and were blessed to receive from him as he inspired, encouraged and ennobled us.
