I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Statue Of Liberation

A church in Memphis (Hickory Hill) has installed a new huge (72ft.) statue. It looks just like the Statue of Liberty but it is holding a cross instead of a torch. They call it the statue of liberation. Many people are offended. Others really like it.

It cost $260,000 and stands outside of a new mega-church (12,000 members) called World Overcomers Outreach Ministries Church. Besides the cross substituting for the torch, there is a tear dripping down from the eye of this statue, and instead of "give me your tired, poor, etc" there are Roman numerals for the 10 commandments.

Oh well, it could be worse. It could be a big statue of Buddha.

Thanks for the heads-up on this story. Funny and sad all at the same time.
