I asked the WMU in Birmingham a couple of questions about the new Lottie Moon book by Regina Sullivan, you know, the book that labels Lottie's death story a "myth".
On the picture of LM above. The WMU archivist dates it at 1877. I had some question about its authenticity but I'm satisfied with that. So, how about we archive the jut-jawed, Lottie Moon schoolgirl photo shown below in favor of this picture.
Let's let Lottie be a grown-up and not a schoolgirl.
I also asked for comment on the death "myth" and Wanda Lee, WMU president, said they were confident in the story as related by Catherine Allen in her 1980 biography of Lottie Moon. Further comment to come later, I would guess.
Any way you slice it or picture it, Lottie Moon's story is an inspiring one.
