Mr Antony Joseph — In Memoriam

He said to me, “Son of man,” stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.” As He spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet and I heard him speaking to me.

Mr Joseph was not unmistaken. You knew where he stood on any matter. He was not afraid to say his mind despite the cost to his career, societal standing, or reputation. With Mr Joseph, you were never in doubt. I did not say he was always right but at the least, you knew where he stood on a matter.

He was comfortable in the trenches. He was comfortable in the backstage. He was comfortable in others taking the shine. He was comfortable to make people like me look like a million stars but him, the very mud of the earth. He was ready to be the kidney so that you might have a healthy body. He was the spine and was not interested in being the face. He preferred to be the clay that is used to make fine pottery. That was Mr Joseph.
