“I Was Just Thinking…” (IWJT) originated in 2007 as a small town newspaper article written by the Rev. Dr. Billy Hutchinson for the Brunswick Times-Gazette in Lawrenceville, Virginia.


Known to many as Pastor Billy, I called him Dad. Throughout those ten-plus years, this article has reached people all over the globe.

My dad passed away on Easter of 2015, and the IWJT article ceased to be written. However, on November 1, 2017, IWJT was relaunched.

In memory of my dad, I will re-post some his original articles throughout the year. I have titled these “IWJT Throwbacks”.
