Yesterday The TICKET was playing the heck out of a commercial for some sort of church ministry, but it caught my attention because it kept mentioning a classmate of mine from college that isn’t Matt Chandler. Regarding that friend, I remember a classmate of his saying how in a Bible class each student was telling the testimony and he was the only one that didn’t face a struggle or hit rock bottom before accepting Christ.

Random modern presidential quote, “As a matter of fact, no president should ever try to impose religion on our society. The great… the great tradition of America is one where people can worship the way they want to worship.And if they choose not to worship, you’re just as patriotic as your neighbor. That is an essential part of why we are a great nation.”
I’ve always been touched by the story of the ten Amish school girls that were shot in Pennsylvania seven years ago. People poke fun of the Amish, but they are certainly devout and true to their faith. After the shooting I remember the grandfather bringing family members in to the scene of the crime and telling them that they must not have hate in their heart for the killer and they must forgive. On the night of the killing, the family of the victims visited the killer’s mother and offered support and they even attended his funeral. How many of us ‘normal’ folk would have the heart and courage to do that? The CBS Evening News had an update on the story and the shooter’s mother continues to be touched by their act of forgiveness and visits one of the victims often.
I live the Chevy Santa commercials and so glad they brought them back another year.
