Three Encouraging “Faith Stories” For Our Friday

Here are three inspiring “Faith Stories” for your Friday.

As you may have heard, Christian quarterback Tim Tebow signed with the New England Patriots a few weeks ago.  The Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, says one of the reasons the team picked him was his spiritual convictions.

Kraft told ESPN “For me personally, having Tim Tebow on this team, he’s someone who believes in spirituality, he’s very competitive and works hard, and has a great attitude, and he’s a winner.”

Kraft says “We’re blessed to have a lot of people like that, but the fact that spirituality is very important to him is very appealing to me.”

Have you shared your faith lately?

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association is challenging you to do just that.

Almost 14-thousand churches have registered in the Association’s “My Hope America” national campaign.

The movement encourages people to reach out to friends, neighbors and relatives and share the message of God’s love.

And finally, a judge has ruled that a large statue of Jesus at the top of a Montana mountain can stay.  An atheist group wanted the statue removed from Big Mountain Ski resort.  That’s because the resort leases land from the US Forest Service.

The Wisconsin based “Freedom from Religion Foundation” had sued, claiming it violated the separation of church and state.

But the judge ruled that even though the giant Jesus is a religious symbol, the Forest Service acted lawfully in granting a new permit for the statue over a year ago.
