One of Ray's colleagues and her husband honored him with an alcove on Memory Lane at the ABC retreat in Green Lake, Wisconsin, a favorite place for the Jennings family. She enshrined one of his popular sermons “Kissing Frogs.” Below you will also find a link to a copy of an outline for one of his Frog Kissing sermons.

Children's Sermon:

The Frog
What a wonderful bird the frog are -
When he stand he sit almost;
When he hop he fly almost.
He ain't got no sense hardly;
He ain't got no tail hardly either.
When he sit, he sit on what he ain't got almost.
