Herolds' Hangout

Thoughts, Reminders, and Reasons to Brag...


We Went to Church

It's been a while since Renea and I took Skyler to church. We went this morning and it was a great experience. One of my students wrote my name (Mr. Herold) on a name tag sticker and gave it to me to wear. Skyler enjoyed dancing, singing, and clapping until it was time for the sermon. So, Renea took him out to the lobby.

I really was glad that we went and the sermon was very memorable. The guest speaker talked about the upcoming historical movie, Amazing Grace, and how it's main character, William Wilberforce, helped bring about the abolition of slavery in England. The one thing that I felt was most important for me was the idea of persistence. Wilberforce spent 17 years trying to get Parliament to pass the law to abolish slavery. Persistence pays off.
