    For the Pioneer

    What name says humble, loving, kind, concerned, gracious, a calming influence, good humor, openness to others, and patience?

    When describing Delbert King on Sunday, May 4th, as he retired as a Methodist minister, those words rolled off the tongues of Williston's First United Methodist Church members.

    Rev. Delbert J. King, a long-time volunteer minister at FUMC of Williston, on Sunday was invited to offer "the sermon he has always wanted to give."
