October 6, 2003

4:42 PM A note from Butch Henderson in Birmingham, AL:

Ok….Cubs win !!! since I can’t pull for the Braves………..Cubbies….Cubbies….Cubbies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s good to know that an old friend has “seen the light.” 4:35 PM On Sunday, October 19, Billy Sunday and Homer Rodeheaver return to Forest Home Cemetery for the “Tale of the Tombstones,” 1-4 PM. 4:34 PM Looking ahead: October 16-18 Reformation and Revival Ministries and the Billy Graham Center are co-sponsoring Reformation 2003 on “Evangelism, The Church’s Mission in the New Century.” Speakers include Becky Pippert, Crawford Lorritts, John Armstrong and Steve Brown. The conference will be held at the Billy Graham Center on the campus of Wheaton College. 4:31 PM Yesterday was the 300th birthday of Jonathan Edwards, the greatest theologian America has ever produced. Al Mohler offers a fitting tribute. 4:30 PM Don’t have an updated Legacy Campaign commitment total. I do know we received a number of new commitments yesterday. Hope to post the new total tomorrow. 10:11 AM Speaking of Dusty Baker, last night after the game, he was asked how he managed to change the atmosphere from expecting to lose to expecting to win. His answer: “I just kept praying and asked the Lord to help us.” He’s a good man. 6:46 AM The Wall Steet Journal has a spot-on editorial about Rush Limbaugh and the allegations of drug abuse. Here’s an excerpt:

Over the years we’ve expended a great deal of ink on the idea that character matters in public life. But we have never bought the idea that moral credibility is predicated on moral perfection; if it were, even our Sunday pulpits would be thunderously silent. Character has as much to do with how we handle our failings as the failings themselves.

6:43 AM Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Cubs Win!
