The Words of Judge Fussell    (From the Life of Judge Joe Fussell)

His brightest glory shone forth when the "merger wave" struck the church. It was then that the church not only needed a man of conviction, but a man with the nerve to stand by his conviction. The church found just such a man in the person of Judge Fussell.

Who that heard it can ever forget that sublime utterance of his at the Fresno General Assembly, California, when, in closing his address for the loyalists on the union question, he said: "Somewhere in the sunlight of God's love the Cumberland Presbyterian Church will live on." And, thank God, the church has weathered the storm and the old Cumberland ship is proudly sailing on with her "Whosoever Will Banner" floating in the breeze. And some day this grand old ship, with its precious cargo of human souls, will round the cape and enter the harbor where all God's children are anchoring one by one.
