One Man Changes History

December 3, 2008 at 3:06 pm (Uncategorized)

So, I just went to Chapel @ Countryside Christian School in Cambridge. Now, I am sitting in Denny’s with a cup of coffee, and getting a little work done. Now, I am not a habitual eavesdropper, but the guy 2 tables behind me is talking very loudly and this is the point he is making:

If Bill Clinton had controlled himself in the Monica Lewinski situation, Al Gore would have won the 2000 election in a landslide, the Iraq war would never have begun, and all the lives & money spent there would have been saved. Whether you agree with that or not, what he concluded with was right on. He said, “Isn’t it amazing that one man can change the face of the world’s history?”

He was absolutely right about that! Isn’t that what we remember every Christmas? The one man (who was also God) who was born into human history and who changed everything. What seemed like an ordinary birth, in an insignificant town, in an unlikely stable made the angels sing, the shepherds celebrate, and the wise men travel. The ordinary birth that brought an extraordinary salvation to men. Merry Christmas.

    Billy-

    Let me start off by saying that I pretty much blog stalked you and read all of your entries on here.
    [done with the creepiness]

    Secondly: It is comforting to know how much you’ve grown as a man, a husband a father and a vessel for God. It puts a huge smile on my face to read the works you have done/will be doing. I am so proud.

    I hope you and your beautiful family are doing well.
