For years pastors have asked their congregants to make sure their faith is lived out everyday of the week, not just on Sundays. But one pastor is concerned Christians might be ditching their beliefs as soon as they exit the sanctuary. In particular, he's learned that some Christians are taking their impatience, anger and unholy behavior out on the waiters and waitresses whose restaurants they patronize following Sunday services.
Tennesse Pastor Chad Roberts, who serves at Preaching Christ Church, told Kingsport's Times News that he read a story last year about a Missouri pastor who disregarded an Applebee's notice that adds an automatic 18 percent gratuity on checks for groups of 10 or more, and instead left no tip at all and wrote on her receipt: "I give God 10 percent, why do you get 18?"
Roberts was disappointed with the pastor's actions and also troubled about the type of message the community is receiving about Christ through the actions of his congregation. more >>
The Good Samaritan behind a late-February act of kindness in Minnesota has come forward, saying it was all in a day's work when he rescued a man suffering from a brain seizure from a busy intersection.
Kyle Severson, a 16-year member of the Minneapolis Police Department, touched the hearts of Minnesotans when on Feb. 28, he responded to a 911 emergency call of a man slumped over the steering wheel of his car in Northeast Minneapolis. The man was 34-year-old Aaron Purmort, who is suffering from stage 4 brain cancer and had had a seizure on Feb. 28 while driving home from work.
Severson reportedly approached Purmort's vehicle just as the man came to, and after a brief line of questioning, Severson realized Purmort was incoherent, unaware of the current day or year and unaware he had been driving when he suffered his seizure. The police officer, noticing the scars on Purmort's head from previous brain surgeries, called an ambulance for the 34-year-old. Instead of impounding his vehicle, as is the routine procedure, Severson parked the car in a nearby parking lot. He then scrawled a brief note indicating the location of the vehicle and put it in Purmont's jacket pocket along with his car keys. more >>
