Ruth Graham,Grace, and the Media Frenzy

February 23, 2010

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. With my new job I’ve had to cut back. Plus my weekends are busier thanks to a greater involvement in my church which IS A GOOD THING!

Speaking of my church we have a big conference this weekend featuring a big name. They’re expecting over a thousand people to show up at Grace Fellowship in Latham to hear Ruth Graham and Friends.

This is the sort of thing that can attract allot of media attention. That can be a mixed blessing.

On the good side it can present our church in a positive light. On the down side news people never get these stories right. You never get to see what’s going on behind the scenes.

Outsiders might look at this story and go

“Oh, look at the flaky Christians wishing upon a star.”

These people will never see all the follow up that goes into something like this. And they will never know all the lives that will be changed for the better.
