"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

Wall of Remembrance: Art and Kitty Guzman and family

"A young man at Grace kept stalking our 16-year old daughter Merry, following her and getting on and off buses where she did. It made her terribly nervous. We went to Jerry Giles about it. He took the young man's side. So we went to Pastor Lou. He told us whatever Jerry said was right. We got a restraining order but Merry didn't feel safe and the leadership wouldn't help so we left the church. They man actually pursued her at our new church for awhile." (Merry's addition: "When I was talking to Pastor Lou about this he just looked out the window. He wasn't interested and didn't care about me.")
