On Sunday, September 11, 2011, our sanctuary will be open from
3:00 to 5:00 p.m. to give our church family and the community
an opportunity to remember and reflect on the 10th anniversary
of a national tragedy and to move forward toward healing and
forgiveness.
The sanctuary video system will offer images of that fateful day
and will guide participants in reflection and healing through the
words of hymns and the writings of Christian and national leaders.
A reflection book will be available to write thoughts, prayers and
remembrances. Come and go as you wish in reverence.
PERSPECTIVES
New Sunday Morning Bible Study Begins Sept. 11
Room 505
Leaders: Steve and Hanni Guinn; Sara Langford
Perspectives is for learners open to
exploring the range of Christian thought.
As a learning, collaborating community,
we will seek to understand beliefs and
practices as we grow in faith. For this
journey, our resources will include the
Scriptures, writings of past and present
thinkers and our personal journeys. Our
journey will presume that we are always
being formed as followers of Christ.
If this sounds like a learning community
you wish to join, please journey with us on
Sunday mornings, starting September 11.

Join Us Beginning Sunday, September 11
A new Connections Class is forming and
will run from September 11–October
9. This Sunday morning opportunity is
specifically for new members and nonmembers who consider 2BC their church
home and want to be more involved.
Connections is designed to encourage each
person to find new energy and purpose
through serving Christ in and through the
church and discover how God’s gifts and
MOMSnext is for
moms with children
who are one of
the “big kids”
now. You have
exchanged diaper
changes, preschool
drop-offs and library time for your “big kid”
for PTA memberships, packing lunches and
explaining to them why someone would call
them dumb. This is for you, your friends, your
neighbors . . . anyone with some school aged
kiddos are welcome.
If you would like to gather and discuss “big
kid” issues, we would love for you to join
us this year for MOMSnext. Last year we
started this group and enjoyed very lively
discussions. It was great to compare notes,
stretch our way of thinking, and support
one another. Michelle Price is leading this
arm of our group. And she is ready to help
us discuss the crazy times of grade school,
middle school, junior high and high school.

Community Groups
The Christ life has always been a common
life. Our dream is that with each passing
day, we will see and know and experience
this life that can be fully embodied only in
community. This fall, several new community
groups will form. A few of the new ones are
listed below.
Overview
Our Community Group Ministry at Second
Baptist is made up of a variety of group
types designed to meet a variety of participants’ needs toward spiritual growth and
involvement.
Study Group – Spiritual growth through
study, exploration and understanding of
God’s word. Study groups can focus on the
Bible, topical books, and new Christian concept studies.
Activity Group – Groups structured to share
and explore a common activity. Activitybased community groups are a great way
Covenant Groups
for people to get to know each other and
move intentionally toward discussions and
spiritual growth through a shared interest.
Support Group – Groups structured
toward learning, encouragement, healing
and growth of members who have gone or
are going through a common experience
or crisis.

fellowship, equip one another, and reach

community and world. Covenant groups
commit themselves to one another for the
benefit of their mutual spiritual growth
by means of a covenant—a serious
commitment or promise between people
and before God.

I Am Second
by Sue Wright
Gary Smith
Did I faint when Gary Smith’s
salutation and notes for I AM
SECOND popped up on my
computer? Well, not really. But
apparently Gary thought I might. That’s why
he warned me to sit down rather than fall over
with surprise when I found his story attached to
an e-mail from him.
Guess he forgot I’m
a woman of faith. I
knew with a bit of
“gentle exhortation,”
as he put it, he’d
be getting some
thoughts together
for me so we could
make him a feature
of the Weekly. He
even submitted
both a condensed
and humored-out
version of his life. If
you’re like me, you’ll
relish both. His is
a narrative full of
family, friendship,
Gary and Debra Rouner-Smith
feeling, faith, and
with Matthew, Amanda and Emily.
witty asides. In fact
and fun, here’s Gary.
We start with the facts.
Want to share your story?
Please contact Sue at
[email protected]
Second
“I was born in Harrisonville, Missouri,” Gary
begins, “It was night (but not last night). I grew
up in Virginia, mostly in a quaint little arm-pit
of a town called Front Royal (pronounced by
the locals, Frun Rall). Note, I say armpit because
the town always smelled of rotten eggs due
to a viscous fibers plant that operated there. I
graduated from Warren County High School
and James Madison University. They call James
Madison a university but I am not sure why. As
for me, I graduated from neither high school nor
college with distinction or acclaim. (Au Laudy
would be more appropriate.)
Baptist Church
I joined the US Army in 1982 and became a
Morse Code Intercept Operator. (Don’t ask, can’t

tell.) I met my wife of nearly 28 years around
the same time (Seems like just yesterday, right
Debra?) I lived in Okinawa, Japan for about
two years as a member of the Army (The Army
said I was ‘stationed’ there but I’ve always
puzzled over how a person can be stationed
anywhere. You can station a trash can, open
a station to sell gas or change horses—you
can station sentries around the perimeter of a
base—but stationed in Japan? Not me. I LIVED
there.) Debra and I moved to Liberty in 1986.
We have three children: Amanda, Matthew, and
Emily (listed in order of their birth to be clear).
Off and on, I have spent the last 26 years in
telecommunications as an engineer. (Actually,
engineer in name only. My degree is in history.)
For a time my family and I lived in Colorado,
a period I equate to the dream season on
‘Dallas.’ We returned to Liberty in 2000 where
I rejoined the only church where I have ever
been a member. (I still hope for a designation
of ‘good standing’ at some juncture.)”
And now, here’s a bit of introduction from Gary
before we enjoy him fleshed-out and, as always,
fully himself. Gary asks us, “Want to cultivate
a highly defined sense of humor? Pray for
patience. If you don’t learn to be patient—to
laugh at yourself and the situations you find
yourself in—you risk being hauled off in one
of those jackets tied up in the back.” It seems
to Gary, God’s preferred medium for comedy
(which also happens to be Gary’s favorite kind)
is irony. “Think of all the times you lobbied the
‘Almighty’ for a decision of your choosing,” he
says, “and what you got back was diametrically
opposite what you wished for. Then consider
the comedy of it all . . . the divine irony . . . how
things worked out if you gave them time (stayed
patient). You have to smile. You may even want
to laugh out loud.” Our invitation to you as you
keep on reading.
“Without giving you details I would have to
deny later, mine was in many ways the very
definition of a misspent youth,” says Gary.
“Thankfully, my love of sports saved me to some
extent from earning a record of those deeds
(That and the fact everyone in town knew my
300 E. Kansas • Liberty, MO 64068 • 816.781.2824

father and grandfather. Everything I ever
did beat me home.) I played whatever
sport was in season and sometimes more
than one sport at a time. My forte was
football; my love, baseball; and the bane
of my life, track.
“I was also a musician, the trumpet my ax.
I WAS the Jazz Band (we couldn’t afford
an ensemble) and its student conductor,
and my senior year, I sat first chair in the
concert band. I loved music (though I admit,
I never liked practicing). A band I played
with just one night before quitting gave me
a solo in ‘Sun Goddess.’ If you remember
the song. give yourself 10 points. (Yes, it
was written by Ramsey Lewis.)
“I went to college in the fall of 1977
where I took up space majoring in selfindulgence with a minor in graduation.
Okay, my major was History (I have a
B.A.) and my minor was Economics. I had
a great time in college; loved the town,
Harrisonburg, Virginia. It was about four
times bigger than the town I grew up in
(bigger than an armpit and not quite as
smelly). I must have had lots of fun because
I have almost no memory of any of it. As
I remember, not remembering anything
WAS the measure of having a good time
in those days.
“About the time I graduated from college,
Ronald Reagan shut down government
hiring at the federal level. By the end of
1981, state governments were following
suit. And so, my dream of becoming a
despotic bureaucrat (an insignificant but
paid cog in the vast government machine)
was dashed cruelly on the shoals of
expedience and fiscal austerity. After
looking for work for about six months, my
college loan deferments having run out,
I decided to join the Army. I hoped to be
a door-gunner but the recruiter talked
me into signing up as a 05H, that’s Morse
Code Signal Intercept Operator. (Came
with a bonus and I learned to copy Morse
Code.)
“While in training at Fort Devens,
Massachusetts, I met the single most
important and significant human being
in my life. You’re thinking Debra? No, I
met…OF COURSE . . . it was my wife
Debra. Nearly everything that is good and

worthwhile about me, I
attribute to her. I wasn’t
much count as a human
being until she came
along. Debra gently
and in a nurturing
manner beat me into a
shape pretty similar to
the one I am today. (No
potter, my Debra. She
was a blacksmith.)
“There are three other
people to whom I
owe the rest of my
humanity: my children,
Amanda, Matthew and
Emily. Their impact on
my life started the moment I held them
in my arms and they continue to humble
and teach me to this very day. I’ve been
a raving maniac and devoted father in
turn. You’ll have to ask my children which
I was the majority of the time. (Hopefully,
I’ll rate a 50–50.) They are such forces of
nature these kids: immutable, unstoppable,
indefatigable, and most important,
creatures unique and marvelous. What
Debra did not shape gently, my children
sculpted with a chisel of razor-sharpness
(a chisel and their mother’s nine-poundhammer).
“I love to play Ultimate Frisbee. When
I’m disposed to read, it’s mostly physics
and science fiction (which I find rather
complementary in a strange sort of way).
I have recently renewed my acquaintance
with the guitar and am learning to play
in an almost discernable way. Currently,
I work for Ericsson on the Sprint Nextel
network in the roaming operations group.
I enjoy comic books, mostly Marvel titles. I
am an avid film buff (my favorite, ‘Bringing
up Baby’). I am the Assistant Deputy
Under-Sous-Chef Apprentice for Debra
at her business, Debra’s Kitchen, where I
make a pretty mean chocolate chip cookie,
if I do say so (and I do)! I remain the
active father of three, though lately, I’m
more checkbook and less ‘Ward Cleaver.’
I’d rather laugh than anything, and my
favorite color is black. My favorite band:
The Allman Brothers.
“To reflect on Second Baptist Church where
so many people have left their thumbprints
300 E. Kansas • Liberty, MO 64068 • 816.781.2824
on me, mentioning one would require me
mentioning all of you. Still, if I may, this
observation about the Middle Schoolers
I’ve taught in Sunday school. It’s been my
incredible blessing and honor to have
known each one these kids so willing to
‘endure’ me. From this extension of my
family (my family of faith), I have received
much love, laughter and fellowship. Every
face—every kindness, smile, laugh, tear,
sorrow—are indelibly etched in the fiber
of my being. They (you) have resonated
through me like the clear, bright tone of a
tuning fork. Thus, I have become pitched to
the same tone and tenor as your warmth,
love, passion and compassion. God is first,
but you are Second. I believe the world is
the beneficiary of our collection of souls.
“To conclude what’s me, this little snippet
to explain my theology. God made the
world good and all that’s in it. It is mankind
and man’s specter that has visited nearly
all the woe upon the denizens of our
universe. Earthquakes, floods, tornados—
natural disasters of all manner and
extent do occur, but not in anyway near
the magnitude of what we have wrought
against ourselves. It is not up to God to
prove there is good in the world. It’s up to
us.”
Thanks, Gary. You are what I’ve read
between the parentheses of our Sunday
morning conversations—a true “Word”
Smith. Isn’t it ironic, someone SECOND
as you could also be second to none!
