The Scandal of Grace
Our church invited a repentant sinner to speak of the grace of Christ at our Easter service. Connecticut's previous governor, John Rowland, was a like rock star in the Republican party. He was young and charismatic and he was corrupted. In fact, he resigned in disgrace and spent almost a year in jail. But before he resigned, he submitted his life to Jesus. Now he tells a story he calls "a fall into grace." His story was short.
