Lois and I are enjoying the weekend in Nebraska City at the Lied Lodge for the Heartland Converge District Pastor’s Renewal Retreat.  This morning, the retreat speaker quoted the evangelist Billy Sunday.

Billy Sunday

Right before Sunday passed away, he said: “I saved the world, but sent my kids to hell!”

I tried to find that quote today but was unable. Can anyone verify that quote?

If Billy Sunday actually said it, then what did he mean?

That his busy ministry ruined his relationship with his children?
