"As You Were" means ignore anything you just saw. Forget everything I just said, or in this case, what I had written yesterday about the surgery of the Rev. Mr. H. Larry Jones. It can also mean "nothing just happened."
In the case of my reporting about the surgery of H. Larry Jones, the pastor of St. Paul's Pentecostal Holiness Church in Swansea, South Carolina, I am not denying the fact that I gave you an incorrect announcement. It was my impression when I received the oral communication that Brother Jones was having surgery on Thursday morning. That was not the case.
Bishop Greg Amos, Superintendent of the South Carolina Conference wrote me immediately when he read the blog I had published about one of his outstanding pastors. Pastor H. Larry Jones, known as "The Little Bishop of South Carolina," will have his by-pass artery surgery on Tuesday morning, March 1. He is still in the hospital and will be there for his surgery and recovery. He is a patient in the Palmetto Health Heart Hospital in Columbia, SC.
The address is: 6 Richland Medical Park Dr. Columbia, SC 29203. General Information: 803-434-7000; Patient Information: 803-434-6111.
Pastor H. Larry Jones has begun his 43rd year as the pastor of St. Paul's Pentecostal Holiness Church in Swansea, South Carolina.
