About Isaiah John Dillard

Isaiah Dillard got the nickname "Kissie" because he was an usher at church for decades. He always greeted the women with a kiss on the cheek because he felt it was the right thing to do based on the teachings of Jesus. His theology was based on the discussion that resulted when Jesus was asked by his disciples how they'd recognize fellow believers in the future once He was gone. Some people may have intended the nickname to be unfavorable originally, but Isaiah was rather proud of the appellation and considered it to be a better testament to his faith then anything he could say by words.
