The first intimate moment with Bill was perhaps some 20+ years ago towards the back of the church sanctuary. We were attending the evening service and he was sitting behind me and listening as I was sharing scripture and encouragement with the person next to me. Bill was listening to every word and when I was done he looked at me (after the service!) and said, thanks, I needed that! Those words revealed to me that Bill was a flawed man who was in need of a touch from Christ! This experience exposed the whole humble and meek side of Bill Kohout.
