"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

Grace Grieving 21: Terry and Patti Polley

     Pastor Lou preached four Sundays in a row about how young people are leaving churches in droves because of division, because of what they're taught and how they're treated. 
     Not at our church! At our church it's the middle-aged and older people who are leaving because of what they're being taught and how they're being treated.
    More victims of Grace for our Wall of Remembrance:
