Two Great Men!

"I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living."

--Ronald Reagan, November 16, 1982

Coach Expresses Appreciation for Christian Campus Group

The NFL Champion Indianapolis Colts were honored at the White House this week during a ceremony on the South Lawn. As a part of their visit, Coach Tony Dungy, known for his dynamic Christian faith, took questions as a part of “Ask the White House,” a regular feature on the White House website. “Christopher” of Grafton, ND asked Dungy’s opinion of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. The following is Coach Dungy’s answer: What do I think of FCA? It means a great deal to me because the Fellowship of Christian Athletes really brings together two things that are close to me: athletics and my Christian faith. I think that’s a great organization to volunteer with as well as they help out in junior highs, high schools, colleges, and help student-athletes become more aware of their surroundings and their eternal life and that has been a great, great benefit to me as I’ve grown up.

I agree, two men worthy of our admiration and who choose to further the kingdom!!

Truly "winners" as they exude Christian leadership!!

I did not realize that Coach Dungy was as strong in His faith till I heard an interview that he had with someone. He strongly expressed his faith in Christ and mentioned salvation and repentance in that interview. I appreciate men like that who are not ashamed to talk about it...especially with the media.

Yes, two great men indeed! I would add our President, George W., in there too! Well, Pam, your cookie is posted...can you tell me how to change fonts on posts and center lettering above pics, etc. please? Thanks

OH for another Ronnie! But I think George W. is a much greater man than many realize. He just happens to live at a time where he must needs be and do unpopular things.
