Album Notes
Upon retirement, most people would opt to settle in to enjoy the cozy, sedentary ways of their golden years.

Not Lucious Newsom.

At the age of 70, this retired minister of 30 years came to the Indianapolis area to observe the Thanksgiving Day custom of serving thousands of the cities’ needy a holiday meal. He thought this was one of the most amazing events he had ever witnessed in his life...until the next day, when he asked the question, “What do these people eat the rest of the 364 days of the year?”

He returned to his home in Tennesee, haunted by what he had experienced. After several weeks of stewing about the problem, his wife, Loreena told him, “Look Lucious, I’ve never stood in between you and the Lord before and I’m not going to start now. If you think God wants you to help those people up north, you’d better get going.”

That was all he needed. Lucious donned a pair of bib overalls and headed to Indianapolis with $100 in his pocket. He knew no one. He became a beggar for the poor. He went to various grocery stores, begging food and then distributing to those in the poorest neighborhoods he could find.

At the age of 92, Lucious went home to His Lord in heaven. The Lord's Pantry in Indianapolis still serves the people of the near west side in downtown Indianapolis as he instructed. Volunteers look lovingly into the eyes of those they serve as if they were looking into the eyes of Jesus Himself.

The area churches will miss his pulpit addresses, when he would often bless the people of the congregation with a toothless, a capella rendition of his favorite old gospel hymns.

Susan Jansen produced this album as a support to his ministry, and a thank-you to the many volunteers who share his great, giving spirit. It is also a reminder of the child-like trust in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit required of believers as they continue on their own journeys of faith, hope and charity.
